La conception bioclimatique est un guide indispensable avant d'entamer tout projet de construction ou de rénovation. En effet, la fin inéluctable de l'énergie bon marché, comme le réchauffement climatique dû à nos émissions de gaz à effet de serre nous engagent à relever le défi de l'architecture bioclimatique. Cet ouvrage fait le point sur les stratégies bioclimatiques actuelles pour obtenir des bâtiments à très faible consommation énergétique, en construction neuve comme en réhabilitation de l'ancien. Comment tirer parti du lieu, du climat et de l'énergie solaire grâce aux serres, murs capteurs, puits canadiens ; comment ventiler naturellement en récupérant la chaleur en hiver et la fraîcheur en été ; comment concevoir des parois isolées avec des matériaux écologiques, sains, et confortables en toutes saisons...Précis, richement documenté et écrit dans un langage accessible, cet ouvrage s'adresse aux particuliers mais aussi aux professionnels qui ont besoin de repères pour s'orienter dans ce domaine complexe et en rapide évolution.

The new edition of this successful book is a detailed description and evaluation of earthships in Europe. Its main purpose is to judge whether the translation of earthships – an American architectural concept pioneered in the New Mexico desert – to a European setting has been successful. The book includes case studies of people who have built earthships in France, Spain and Britain and a round-up of other projects. It also includes analysis of the most detailed thermal monitoring ever carried out on an earthship and the only ever known airtightness test. This analysis is used to make a series of design recommendations to help make earthships more effective in different climactic conditions. The book concludes by predicting the likely future of earthships in Europe – whether they will become a model for large-scale low-carbon housing or remain the preserve of a few brave self-builders.

For a number of years, the healthy and environment-friendly building material earth, in common use for thousands of years, has been enjoying increasing popularity, including in industrialized nations. In hot dry and temperate climate zones, earth offers numerous advantages over other materials. Its particular texture and composition also holds great aesthetic appeal. The second and revised edition of this handbook offers a practical systematic overview of the many uses of earth and techniques for processing it. Its properties and physical characteristics are described in informed and knowledgeable detail. The author’s presentation reflects the rich and varied experiences gained over thirty years of building earth structures all over the world. Numerous photographs of construction sites and drawings show the concrete execution of earth architecture. Prof. Dr. Gernot Minke is a professor at Universität Kassel, where he leads the Forschungslabor für Experimentelles Bauen. He has long concerned himself with developments in ecological building, and he has dealt with the building material clay in theory and practice since 1977. His book Building with Straw was also published by Birkhäuser.
