Abstract:Climate is called "the only nature that has not been artificially created". With the acceleration of globalization, the convergence of buildings in different regions is increasingly apparent. When we retrospect to the regionality of buildings, the local climate with which the buildings are born becomes a crucial environmental clue.This paper explores the potential of architecture response to local climate from the dimensions of design strategy and integrated design. It takes the train station as an example to analyze the methods of climate-responsive design. The thesis is mainly divided into six chapters:
The first chapter puts forward the research background and problems, comprehensively analyzes the development and research status of climate-responsive architecture, clarifies the research objectives, and constructs the framework.
Based on historical theory and practical cases, the second chapter analyzes the evolution of climate-responsive concepts and practices from three periods: traditional architecture, modern architecture, and contemporary architecture.
The third chapter discusses the principle of climate-responsive architecture design, analyzes human comfort and energy demand, and energy transformation in climate from the perspective of energy, and then puts forward climate-responsive design strategy based on architectural system (structure, skin, equipment). Finally, it puts forward that integrated design is the key to strategy application.
The fourth chapter analyzes the case of the train station and summarizes its regularity based on climate response. Firstly, the four periods of railway station building development are briefly summarized. Then the global climate is simplified into four climatic regions: hot-humid, hot-dry, temperate and cold. Finally, the corresponding design strategies of different climate zones are analyzed.
The fifth chapter takes Chongming Train Station as an example to analyze how to apply climate-responsive design strategy and integrated design method in practice to realize the combination of architectural performance and aesthetics.
Chapter six concludes and puts forward the prospect.
Climate-responsive design is based on the principle of energy flow. It analyzes the stable regional physical conditions, such as wind, sunshine, and air temperature, with scientific methods and realizes it through appropriate design strategies and highly integrated design. Nowadays, with increasing attention to sustainability and energy, climate-responsive design provides a new perspective and development trend for contemporary architecture.
