Investigation of Passive Design Criteria in terms of Thermal Comfort and Energy Consumption for Mosques: Istanbul Case
Keywords:Thermal comfort; Mosque; Religious Building; Building Envelope; Building Type.
The thermal comfort level of the mosques affects the prayer efficiency, the activity duration and the health of the users. Also, it is an important parameter to keep energy consumption at a minimum level while providing acceptable thermal comfort in the indoor environment. In order to ensure thermal comfort and to use energy effectively, it is necessary to pay attention to passive design criteria in the design process of mosques. Within the scope of this study, design criteria such as location, environment variables, building form, plan scheme, etc. were investigated according to the regulations and standards, manuscripts in the literature. This paper will be a base for researchers in future studies on mosques.
