Dynamic breathing buildings to combat global warming

The paper presents the results from 3 months of pre-occupancy monitoring of the alerno project house. Further data will be subsequently gathered over a full year of post-occupancy monitoring. In addition, reference is made to the findings from a recent trial in Abu Dhabi (UAE) where the versatility of the Dynamic Breathing Building (DBB) approach in cooling mode has been established. To conclude, DBBs can offer step-change reduction in the carbon footprint of any building while at the same time providing generous volumes of fresh, filtered ventilation air to occupants and cleaning up the outdoor environment. The authors encourage developers and architects worldwide, without reservation, to apply DBB principles to their future building projects.
