Use aristotelian ways of thinking such ...

The building must store free heat for when the weather is cold.
The building must release proportionally heat to avoid it become too hot.
What measures would be conducive to that?
What specific tricks or technologies provide free heat, or free refrigeration, or what would their cost be compared with traditional ways of providing comfort?
In what ways we can provide natural and sound ventilation, according to the actual needs and aiming to stay without mechanical help within the comfort zone?

These questions and alike can be answered some by imagination, others by thinking, and others through study and the use of tools such the search engines for the web. But at the core of architectural thinking resides always the question of in what shape and in what way I design this building that this and this thing are attained?
