The direct relationship that man has with his environment makes more and more people develop a friendly way of doing it. Part of the overall human action is construction activity and the operation of constructions, which have a large share of total energy consumption.
The underground has been man’s outlet for protection from temperature changes since ancient times. The main characteristic of the underground is the provision of a stable thermal environment.
This research project aims to analyze underground structures. It refers to primitive patterns and specific examples of different lengths and widths of the earth.
It continues analyzing, mainly through the examples, the structural and functional factors of underground constructions. It aims, through their analysis and classification, for basic design principles to occur, acting as a guideline for every case of underground construction.
A submerged construction has significant advantages, but there are certainly issues that we will need to face.
It is our aim, to analyze such a construction in Greece where we have direct access, to understand the way of life inside through its owners and to calculate energy yields (outputs) and study conditions prevailing in them.
