Abstract

All countries of the world are moving to take measures to develop solutions to confront climate change, build resilience, and adapt to the inevitable effects of climate change, the growing energy crisis, and record concentrations of greenhouse gases... Here comes the role of architectural solutions, through successful designs using raw materials appropriate to the climate. It is hot in the Arab countries, especially the countries located in the desert climate region, which requires reusing some traditional architectural concepts with more modern designs, relying on technology, and using new methods of thermal insulation in order to make the building and the interior space more comfortable for the user by achieving thermal comfort. The research aims to study the architectural and design concepts and solutions in hot areas, humidify and renew the indoor air, and direct solar energy in a way that suits the nature of the climate and location in hot desert areas and encourage the concept of sustainable, environmentally friendly architecture, to rationalize energy consumption as one of the pillars on which the success of sustainable development in any country depends. Community and selection of advanced technology in a way that does not negatively affect the interior space.
