Emerging Technologies in Ventilation

Dr Mark B Luther and Dr Zhengdong Chen

Innovation in ventilation systems is becoming an increasingly popular and targeted topic of architectural discourse. Architects, consultants and contractors are introducing new products and proposing new systems, subject to client requests for an environmentally responsive architecture. The authors, in compiling the research for this guide, experienced a large increase in Australian constructed buildings that focused specifically on ventilation strategies and systems.

This note presents and discusses the underlying principles of different ventilation techniques. Applications of specific ventilation techniques are demonstrated through building examples constructed in Australia as well as overseas. Although a particular building design may demonstrate several ventilation concepts simultaneously, this note illustrates the most dominant ventilation features in each example.
