The media library of Saint-Joseph (Reunion) questions the identity of the contemporary architecture of Reunion, that of the Sud Sauvage more precisely. It refers to images, block of basalt, fagot of vetyver, geko, kalbanon but especially for uses, taking again the progressiveness of the sequences of traditional entries, creating a progression between the public space and that of the intimate one.

Transitional spaces are meant as “a space in between indoor and outdoor climate, or between two indoor environments, which thermal characteristics can be or not modified by mechanical control system and where occupant may experience the dynamic effect of this change”. Nowadays, transitional spaces are pivotal in non-residential architecture and the proportion of such areas may vary between 10% up to 40% of the total volume depending on the typology. Mixed-mode buildings are desings with by both active and passive systems.

GEOTABS is an acronym for the combination of geothermal heat pumps with thermally activated building systems (TABS). It is an innovative clean technology for energy efficient and healthy buildings which has several advantages; the radiant heating and cooling system has already proven to be one of the most comfortable ways to condition indoor spaces, especially multi-storey offices.

This paper summarises recent research on urban heat islands carried out in Europe. Recent studies to identify the amplitude of urban heat islands as well as the main reasons that increase temperatures in urban areas are identified and discussed for southern, mid- and northern Europe. Studies aiming to identify the energy impact of heat islands are presented, as well as those that explore the impact of heat islands on the cooling potential of natural and night ventilation techniques.
