In condition of more and more scarce energy, environmental pollution and global warming, it is inevitable to using endless natural energy resources such as solar energy, wind energy in designing urban and architecture of 21th century. Especially in Vietnam and South East Asia, they have serious problem for energy consumptions with developing the country.
To avoid energy consumption by air conditioner and maximize the natural resources, natural ventilation technique and principles of aerodynamics is adopted for this design to create an organized natural ventilation system for a building with using water for cooling the air.
This building contains 3 main components to realize natural ventilation:
1.2 Roofs – wind collection and evacuate
2.Room – wind focus
3.Pool – cooling the air
The design of 3 components has studied carefully by the computer air simulation. The output of simulation had feed bucked many times for the design development.
As the result of the design, this café has got apace with comfortable environment for the customers. This design way can be adopted for the new designs of building in South East Asia.
