Contenuto: This book analyses the interaction between man and the environment. It includes ways for the reader to take themselves through tests designed to determine types of psychological personality and the ideal conditions for comfort for each of those types. These conditions of comfort may then be employed to define the requirements for a dwelling by establishing connections between architectural and design solutions. Examples of the dwellings most suitable for each of the psychological types are provided, together with methods to assess dwellings. Issues concerning the energy efficiency of a dwelling and the opportunities for using renewable energy sources for independent power supply are also considered. This book is for architects, designers, and for anyone who wishes to make a dwelling a home - comfortable and attractive.
