Weather Formations - An Architectural Meteorology Roewu Architecture
|Author||Stephen Roe Chiafang Wu|
|Publisher||Garden City Publishers|
When weather becomes part of the design of buildings, new affiliations between meteorology and architecture emerge. As the interaction with and use of energy and natural flows within cities and buildings becomes increasingly crucial to the future of urban design, questions regarding the appropriate formal and spatial expressions of these forces must also be addressed. ROEWU, a collaboration between Stephen Roe and Chiafang Wu, combines the experiences each brings from the volatile weather inherent to their respective places of origin, Ireland and Taiwan. This book offers new perspectives as the intersections of climate and architecture are explored.
