ABSTRACT

Vernacular design strategies can be identified and adapted to improve the energy performance of modern architecture in Kurdistan. This paper focus on some passive cooling strategies that were used in hot climate to reduce the use of energy for cooling, and enhancing a green architecture. Furthermore, the main purpose is adapting architecture to the climate environment through modernization passive ventilation solutions for building, trying to achieve this goal by analyzing some of the traditional natural ventilation strategies. Moreover, improving the effect of using natural ventilation on reducing cooling load through utilizing the vernacular principles for cooling. In addition, showing some examples of using the vernacular ventilation strategies that are common in Kurdistan in the modern buildings and on the city level explain the possibility to adapt them by application of some design elements and high technology devices. Finally, showing the effectiveness and applicability of these strategies in the future and sustainable building in Kurdistan.
