dc.description.abstract Nowadays, because of lack of traditional sources of energy and high maintenance cost, building as a one of the major energy consumer and its problems in hot regions become one of the main concerns of architects and designers. Also, there is a growing global interest in the impact of human activities on the environment in respect to global warming. The increment of energy demand in the developing world and global warming issues define the need for buildings with less problems. With regards to built environment, the primary concern is sustainability in the developments of the building industry and building energy consumption. This implies consideration of the impact of the climate and environment on the building and ultimately the effect of the building’s condition on the occupants. This awareness has initiated many studies related to climatic design to maximize indoor comfort with minimum and efficient use of the energy. Therefore, this study tried to collect building problems by focus on hot regions and provide some precautions related to those problems for planners, architects and others who working with planning and design of the built environment in hot climate zones. In this case building problems in different terms for hot climate areas have been considered. Following research contains three chapters. First chapter is the introduction to building problems in terms of thermal comfort, construction and building services systems in hot climates. In second chapter those problems, which have been discussed in chapter 1 evaluated. Finally chapter 3, which is conclusion for this study, tried to show the possible areas for further studies. en_US
