Schools in the hot and humid zones of the Asian region are narrow to ensure good ventilation. The purpose of this report is to show that it is possible, through appropriate design, to obtain sufficient breeze for thermal comfort in buildings as wide as 15 meters. Some of the conclusions of a study of the subject are summarized. The summary is followed by a series of illustrations showing the principles of air flow; and the effects of louvers, window size, vertical projections on the windward wall, adjacent buildings, and landscaping on ventilation.
