|Abstract: ||Natural ventilation, relying on openings in the fac¸ade, is applicable to a limited range of climates, sites and building types. Advanced naturally
ventilated buildings, such as those using stacks to encourage buoyancy driven airflow, or hybrid buildings, which integrate both natural and
mechanical systems, can extend the range of buildings and climate within which natural ventilation might be used.
This paper describes the design of a new library building for a college, located near Chicago, which uses a new hybrid ventilation concept
despite the severe continental climate. The likely operation of the building is illustrated using dynamic thermal modelling and computational fluid
dynamics analyses. The new building challenges ingrained preconceptions about building designs for severe climates and exposes barriers to low
energy buildings posed by national standards and guidelines.|
