English abstract:
We present the systematic framework and the initial results of an effort to obtain, analyze, and interpret indoor and outdoor environmental data for traditional buildings in six Mediterranean countries. We specifically illustrate the matrix of outdoor and inddor environmental parameter to be monitored together with the corresponding instrumentation tools and data collection processes. We describe how data thus obtained will be used to calibrate simulation models of the buildings. Such models can be used to better understand the specific bio-climatic performance features of traditional architecture and to evaluate alternative options for their improvement, restoration and reuse.
