Designing for Climate (Building and Urban Design in the Tropics) PDF file.

This document gathers together basic CRD information, climatic research, and experience. It began as course notes for my teaching work at the PNG University of Technology Department of Architecture in the 1980s, and has been updated on a regular basis. Some of the material in this document formed part of award-winning planning scheme policies at the former Thuringowa City Council, and one element continues as a policy on residential lot design in the 2014 planning scheme for the expanded city of Townsville.
