Deng, Wang, & Dai. (2014). How to evaluate performance of net zero energy building – A literature research. Energy, 71, 1-16. Summary: NZEB (net zero energy building), is an evaluation system that shows how building design is considered as a sustainable design or not. There are many points indicates that the building is under the zone of the highperformance energy building or not; moreover, the NZEB system has a lot of studies show how exactly they consider structures from many points by different methods and strategies such as passive design, design comfort, and renewable energy balance. Critique: The evaluation is one of the essential ways to test the performance in the building. In this article, I learned how it works. NZEB is one of the measure method of testing the building from many aspects, and that is a proper method, if we take as a serious point and design through the strategies to make the building environmentally friendly. On the other hand, the methods were too complicated for someone who is not families with this kind of studies because of the specification and number details. For my vision, I did not expect the sustainable building design must have a hard test to be considered as sustainable building with all these details. Lenzholzer, S., & Brown, R. (2013). Climate-responsive landscape architecture design education. Journal of Cleaner Production, 61(C), 89-99. Summary Nowadays, studies show that climate whether around the world is getting warmer, and there are some evidences behind that study. This article clarified with some methods for their colleagues in two different Landscape Architecture school of how to deal with that issue in the real world. The study was in two different schools in the MSC class in Wageningen and the University of Guelph. In the end, students educated how to design with dealing with the climate, use analytics for the climate affecting, and improve their project by using the excellent climate strategy before the design. Critique: In this article, I believe that climate response study was related to specific areas, but from my experience, I think each country or city must have different research because the climate is different. What I like here is how they let students participate and have the experience to work with this kind of problem. The comparison between two different schools was also clear of how accurate they try to confirm in this study was. Mauri, Vallati, & Ocłoń. (2019). Low impact energy saving strategies for individual heating systems in a modern residential building: A case study in Rome. Journal of Cleaner Production,214, 791-802. Summary: This study was in Rome about strategies that were applied to a building to reduce heat gain by using natural gas in many sequences. Simulating procedures in this building were one of the methods used to examine the heating before and after replacing the new system by reducing energy use and improve the efficiency on the operating system; moreover, evaluate the results from testing the temperature for each period. Critique: In this article, I appreciate the works from the author by using an old building and try to renew the efficiency of the building by using the modern sustainable design to reduce the energy and simulate the climate response to natural temperature. The perfect way he used to clarify his strategy was on giving a picture example of the tips he used to confirm his methods. The graphs and the studies he posted in his article were not very clear to someone who is not familiar to this kind of program, so it was not crucial for me because it is hard to recognize. Petersen, and Bundgaard. "The Effect of Weather Forecast Uncertainty on a Predictive Control Concept for Building Systems Operation." Applied Energy 116 (2014): 311-21. Web. Summary: In this article, there is a study of how to make the energy operation system automatically prepared for the changes of the climate during the year. The system will be ready from the information came from the comparison of the changes during the two years between a study on 24 building. The temperature will appear in the system, and solar design will work depending on the heat or the cooling needs. Critique: This study shows that how technology is has efficient participating in the sustainable design building. The system here will save the energy and the environment from the many points; however, applying this system in the old built building is going to be hard. From my experience, this study will focus on the new modern big buildings because to apply this operating system will need a high cost and design particular details. Sameh, Sherin H. "Promoting Earth Architecture as a Sustainable Construction Technique in Egypt." Journal of Cleaner Production 65 (2014): 362. Web. Summary: Many issues are facing the building on these days in many countries such as energy problems, cost-effectiveness, air pollutions, and the lousy using of different materials. Sustainable design is one of the solutions for helping the environment from many aspects; specifically, in Egypt for this study. There are many methods and strategies to build and solve those problems and to make the building friends to the environment. Critique: What I liked in this study is how they have a big common issue for most of the buildings in the world and bring the solutions to apply it in a specific country like Egypt. Most of these issues are related to saving the environment. The best thing here is how do I think about using and choose the material that will affect sustainable design as well. From my vision, using Egypt an example of this study is more complicated because of the air pollutions they have it from the bad using of the fouls. Sun, Gou, & Lau. (2018). Cost-effectiveness of active and passive design strategies for existing building retrofits in tropical climate: Case study of a zero energy building. Journal of Cleaner Production, 183, 35-45. Summary: This study was in a renewal building in southeast Asia for applying the strategies of the Zero net energy on the structure to high performance the ability of the structure. These strategies were compared from the positive and negative points such as cost-effectiveness, LEED system, and HVAC system, and ventilation. They are applying these systems needed to examine the old operating system in different methods to compare the result at the end. Critique: The author clarified how were the strategies in the building of his hometown were to respond to the changes those he made by using the new operating system in the sustainable design; however, on the other articles they have just a study without producing any results on the natural. The functional aspects I liked in his research he verified that results will not appear at the nearest time but will be enhanced on the future. Zebari, & Ibrahim. (2016). Methods & Strategies for Sustainable Architecture in Kurdistan Region, Iraq. Procedia Environmental Sciences, 34(C), 202-211. Summary: These days, sustainable design is the most improvement way to design. In this article, there was a study case in Iraq, and the researcher was trying to point to some problems in the building in his hometown and come with solutions to solve these issues. He tried to explain by specific sustainable design strategies and methods such as passive design, passive solar system, and redesign utilization space. Critique: This article has a lot of relevant information, and it was constructive to learn something new from it. The methods and the strategies picked up carefully, and the author seems like he has good experience for this kind of issue. However, I did not like the study case he mentioned back home because the situation is very different from, he picked up the studies and when trying points these solutions, I did not see how exactly it work or not. There was not a clear result for this study. References: o Deng, Wang, & Dai. (2014). How to evaluate performance of net zero energy building – A literature research.

literature research. Energy, 71, 1-16.
NZEB (net zero energy building), is an evaluation system that shows how building design
is determined to be a sustainable design, or not. Within the article, there are many
indicators noted which one may use when accessing if a building is under the zone of
high-performance energy. Further, the NZEB system has undergone numerous studies
which illustrate exactly how these structures are considered, including multiple points,
methods, and strategies. These include passive design, design comfort, and renewable
energy balance.
This evaluation illustrates an essential method in testing the performance of a building. I
learned that NZEB is one of the suggested methods of testing the building from many
aspects. NSEB also outlines design strategies when making a building environmentally
friendly. The flipside of this is that the methods were quite complicated, especially for
someone who is not familiar with this type of specification and detail. Personally, I was
not expecting a sustainable building design to require a hard test in order to be considered
as a sustainable buil...
