Potential of Bioclimatic Architecture in the Formation of Regional Spatial Environment

Edgars Suvorovs, Sandra Treija


Bioclimatic architecture is a world-known trend in
building architecture design, but in Latvia this term is scarcely used.
While studying the theory of architecture and analysing practical
examples, the author of this Paper has endeavoured to outline the
role of bioclimatic factors in the formation of features of regional
architecture. This Paper renders a historical outset of incoming of
sustainable development ideas into architecture. With a glance to
the urgency of energy–efficient building in Latvia the Paper also
affords a look at the differences between bioclimatic architecture
and energy-efficient building.
