520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc The concept of biophilic and bioclimatic architecture represents one of the most promising ideas in sustainable building. Together with its consideration of ecologically harmless materials and use of renewable energy sources, it brings an enormous quality increase in planning and workmanship, as well as an improvement in inhabitants’ comfort. This valuable concept merits a dedicated discussion. Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture outlines a new movement that aims to create environmentally-friendly, energy-efficient buildings and developments by effectively managing natural resources. The book has three parts: Part I focuses on the impact of human needs on the creation process and assesses the concept of value in architectural hypotheses. Part II opens the way to a new understanding of biophilic architecture as a response to destructive human activities and also considers the side effects of using natural resources. Part III shows the significant benefits of making the connection between climate and comfort that can be achieved through bioclimatic architecture. Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture will enable architects, engineers and other specialists to develop innovative, sustainable architectural designs.
