Download our presentation on "Innovative Green Tropical Green Building Designs", presented at the Green Architecture Symposium organised by Aemulus. This short 15-minute presentation zooms into some of the projects where we successfully have collaborated with architects in incorporate free cooling systems into the buildings by drawing on natures free energy sources of sky cooling, solar energy and buoyancy, which has allowed us to develop a zero energy air-conditioning system that both cools, dehumidifies and drives the air through the building without the use of any electrical energy:

After the symposium, I took the following photographic images that show how the greenery around the Aemulus building helps to cool the environment:
Both photos were taken around 6 pm on a sunny evening, 17 March 2022. The benefit of greenery to cool the surroundings is evident. The surface temperature of the greenery is about 10 degrees Celsius lower than the hardscape surfaces like asphalt and concrete.
