Integral approach for adaptable indoor comfort; Building and occupants follow the sun

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


The focus on the needs and drives for adaptation of the building automatically leads to changing needs and demands of the occupants of the building. Building should really take care of its occupants and show adaptable behaviour and reaction to the changing outdoor environment during the day. Design for adaptability should start with the occupants needs for comfort and indoor air quality. These are partly influences by the changing environmental forces as wind and sun. Weather predictions and the aggegated voting of users about their thermal comfort, should be the leading parameters to adaptable comfort and the adaptable building.
