Natural Ventilation | Sustainability Workshop

Autodesk Knowledge Network

Natural ventilation, also called passive ventilation, uses natural outside air movement and pressure differences to both passively cool and ventilate a building. Natural ventilation is important because it can provide and move fresh air without fans. For warm and hot climates, it can help meet a building's cooling loads without using mechanical air conditioning systems. This can be a large fraction of a building's total energy use.

Ecobrick Exchange: The City of Cape Town is constructing an Early Childhood Development Centre out of (almost entirely) reclaimed and natural materials. City architect Ashley Hemraj has achieved a miracle by convincing authorities to build with this wide range of alternative materials.
