One of human body reaction in environment consists in achievement of adaptation poise through the building a protective cover. Between the man and the protective space, always is set a reaction of mutual and permanent character. What is the relation between vernacular architecture and passive bioclimatical concepts?

Hello Jhing,

There are passive bioclimatic designs, where openings and controling climate is through them, in active bioclimatic design elements like plants are used to influence the ambiant climate conditions. As you are in the Philippines and looking for some application in market place, study the form of the building, the relationship of its openings as well as the circulation of ambient air through them and get help from your local gied to get in-depth study.
