Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture is a guide to innovative architectural design for architects, engineers and other specialists who are working with biophilic and bioclimatic architectural concepts.

The concept of biophilic and bioclimatic architecture represents one of the most consistent concepts of sustainable building. By considering ecologically harmless materials and the use of renewable energy sources, it brings an enormous increase of quality in planning and workmanship, as well as comfortable living. This new movement aims to create environmentally friendly, energy-efficient buildings and developments by effectively managing natural resources. It merits a deeper exploration.

Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture has three parts:
• Part I focuses on the relationship between architecture and human needs and the creation process, demonstrating the meaning of architectural value in architectural hypothesis.
• Part II opens the way towards a new understanding of biophilic architecture as a response to the negative actions of humans and the negative effects of using natural resources.
• Part III shows the benefits of combining the effects of the climate with the notion of human comfort in bioclimatic architecture.

Climate change, environmental impact and declining natural resources are driving scientific research and novel technical solutions. Green Energy and Technology serves as a publishing platform for scientific and technological approaches to "green" - i.e., environmentally friendly and sustainable - technologies. While the main focus lies on energy and power supply, the series also covers green solutions in industrial engineering and engineering design. Green Energy and Technology is a monograph series addressing researchers, advanced students and technical consultants, as well as decision makers in industry and politics. The level presentation ranges from instructional to highly technical.
