    • ARCHITECTURAL RESPONSE TO CLIMATIC PATTERNS 

      Brown, G. Z.; Novitski, B. J. (Center for Housing Innovation, University of Oregon, 1997)
      We have analysed several climates in terms of some basic recurring weather patterns, and then classified these patterns in terms of direct architectural response. This analysis allows the designer to organize and ...
    • CITY FORM: THE CREATION OF COMFORTABLE URBAN MICROCLIMATES 

      Brown, G. Z.; Novitski, B. J.; Kleczynski, H. (Center for Housing Innovation, University of Oregon, 1981)
      This paper describes a method for analyzing the climate of exterior spaces in terms of human thermal comfort. Hypothetical city configurations are compared in two U.S. climate zones.
    • Climate Responsive Earth-Sheltered Buildings 

      Brown, G. Z.; Novitski, B. J. (Center for Housing Innovation, University of Oregon, 1981-03)
      An understanding of the impact of climate on the built environment can lead to the' design of more fuel-efficient buildings. The authors present a methodology for analyzing climate conditions in terms of the architectural ...
    • GLOBAL WARMING, COMPUTERIZED DESIGN TOOLS AND INDUSTRIALIZED HOUSING 

      Brown, G. Z. (Center for Housing Innovation, University of Oregon, 1990-11)
      This paper reviews the author's and his associates' current research in the areas of global warming, computerized design tools and industrialized housing. The global warming study for buildings in the United States ...
    • THE HICROCLIMATES AROUND FREE-STANDING BUILDINGS 

      Brown, G. Z.; Novitski, B. J. (Center for Housing Innovation, University of Oregon, 2011)
      This paper describes the methodology and results of a project to study the behavior of the sun and wind in creating more or less favorable microclimates around two suburban building types in two U.S. locations.
    • A METHOD FOR ANALYSING CLIMATE IN TERMS OF ARCHITECTURAL RESPONSES 

      Brown, G. Z.; Novitski, B. J. (2011-01-21)
      We have developed computer-aided techniques for analysing climates in terms of the combined effects of insulation, air temperature, wind speed, and relative humidity and have linked these to specific architectural ...
    • PASSIVE DESIGN IMPLICATIONS DERIVED FROM CLIMATE ANALYSIS FOR VARIOUS LOCATIONS 

      Brown, G. Z.; Novitski, B. J. (Center for Housing Innovation, University of Oregon, 1980-10)
      In earlier work, we have developed methods of describing climate in terms of the interactive effects of insulation, air temperature, wind speed, and relative humidity. By characterizing their effects in terms of the ...
