Terrace gardens
Do terrace gardens decrease the temperature inside a building compared to the outside temperature? Instead of cavity walls and insulations what are the other solutions which reduce heat conductivity?

smart materials can be another option if you dont want to use cavity walls.
search them in google and see what you get.
