Research on the Application of Low Carbon Concept in the Design of Vernacular Architectures
This paper starts from the concept of low-carbon building, aiming at the high carbon dioxide emissions in Chinese construction industry; by way of surveys and researches, it discusses the scientificity of the shape, the construction materials, and construction mode of traditional vernacular architecture. Combining current advanced technology of low carbon emissions, this paper studies the main methods for villages and towns to start low carbon architectural design in the future.
