Heating, Cooling, Ventilation, Daylighting and More Using Natural Flows

David A Bainbridge & Ken Haggard

Passive Solar Architechture shows us how new buildings can be designed to be solar oriented, naturally heated and cooled, naturally lit and ventilated, and made with renewable, sustainable materials – no matter the location or climate.

Passive Solar Architechture is a comprehensive overview of passive solar design, from two of America’s solar pioneers. This beautiful hardcover book gives homeowners, architects, designers, and builders the keys to successfully harnessing the sun and maximising climate resources for heating, cooling, ventilation, and daylighting.


“Bainbridge and Haggard draw upon examples from their own experiences, as well as those of others, of more than three decades to offer both overarching principles as well as the details and formulas needed to successfully design a more comfortable, healthy, and secure place in which to live, laugh, dance, and be comfortable. Even if the power goes off.

Passive Solar Architecture also discusses “greener” and more-sustainable building materials and how to use them, and explores the historical roots of green design that have made possible buildings that produce more energy and other resources than they use.” – Book-builder’s Award (Best in Category for Professional, Illustrated Books)
