Abstract:

This Thesis proposes a new method for developing Passive Solar Architectural Retrofit Concepts to be used in Air Force Project Booklets. This method can be used for in-house design projects, AE design projects, and major projects administered by Army or Navy Engineering. This Thesis has three parts A series of 35 Patterns to be used by the Architectural Programmer and user. The recommendations contained in each pattern are specific enough for the programmer and user to identify, for them, the decisions they need to make early in the programming process, and yet the recommendations are not overly restrictive to the designer, A sample Passive Solar Architectural Retrofit Program using selected patterns from part one of this Thesis, A sample Conceptual Design using the Architectural Program of part two of this Thesis.
