Abstract

Efficient use of energy and indoor comfort is accepted as the priority of modern architectural design trends, making it obligatory to design building shells in a specific form to provide adequate flexibility for energy flow and thermal comfort. Accordingly, climate-adaptive building shells (CABS) offer opportunities to significantly reduce energy use in buildings and lower CO2 emissions while serving as a promising alternative for sustainability. This study examines the development of climate-adaptive, high-performance and advanced facade systems through office buildings where energy consumption is higher than other constructions. The research method used in the study is data collection, process tracing, and content analysis from qualitative methods. The study consists of two stages. In the first stage of the study, climate-adaptive facade systems are investigated in detail; facade systems that will form the sub-headings of the CABS term have been determined and explained through the literature. The second stage of the study examines climate-compatible facade systems in energy-efficient design. It considers the factors affecting energy-efficient façade systems following the analysis of the prominent headings in the literature review.
