Abstract

The paper proposes an innovative energy performances evaluation and design approach, developed during the II° Ph.D. IEA Task 40 Summer School. The aim of the work is to check the importance of a ‘design with climate’ approach in understanding how much climate conditions can influence the design choices. The idea is to focus on the technical and architectural solutions that have the highest impact on the overall energy performances of the building in its original climate, then to move it to a completely different location, re-evaluating the energy performances of the building, in connection to the new site challenges. The last step is a re-design study in order to achieve the best performances in the new location.
