Passive Energy-Saving Design in Hot and Humidity Area: A Case Study of Multi-Functional Stadium of Guangdong College of Pharmacy
As stadiums have high energy consumption in architectural lighting and air conditioning, how to make full use of natural lighting and natural ventilation is the key to architectural energy conservation. To this end, many passive energy conservation measures have been taken into account in designing Multifunctional Stadium of Guangdong Pharmaceutical University. For instance, strip light windows with vertical shading have been installed on east and west facade, open external windows on south and north facade etc. Test result of the Stadium shows that the above-mentioned passive design methods are able to increase natural light intensity of the playing field and prevent glare, improve wind velocity of natural ventilation and comfort in spectator areas.
