■  We spend more than 80 percent of our time indoors - whether living or working. With energy costs of buildings dominated by air conditioning, fans and other mechanical systems that cool buildings, renewed interest is being paid to the concept of "passive" cooling, especially traditional/vernacular ideas that suit the unique conditions in the tropics. GDRC revisited an old document on this topic - a collection of design ideas - which has been updated and uploaded to the Urban Environmentl Management pages.
