This chapter reviews some interactions between buildings and our wider environment. The correct assessment of climate helps to create buildings which are successful in their external environment, while a knowledge of ‘sick’ buildings helps to avoid unsuccessful internal environments. The sections on energy conservation and ‘green’ buildings suggest how the correct design and use of our buildings can help to improve our total environment.
