Abstract

The vernacular architecture of Kerala is perceived for giving agreeable indoor climatic conditions to its clients through normal and inactive cooling strategies. The modern residential buildings, with the use of present technology, results in higher rate of consumption of energy hence, it is necessary to conserve energy for sustainable economic development through adoption of passive cooling techniques. Traditional buildings focused on architectural features for attaining desired thermal comfort. But at present, while construction of residences, people are focusing on modernization rather than giving importance to climatic conditions of the area. Thus, this paper makes an effort to understand and analyses different passive cooling techniques of residential buildings in Kerala and exploring its feasibility.
