Climate adaptive building shells carry out the adaptation efficiently thanks to the mechanisms consisting of sensors, processors and actuators systematically participated in decision-making process. In this article, it is aimed to examine the strategies that contribute to the efficient operation of the elements and components controlled by the strategies in the context of climate adaptive buildings. In addition, it is aimed to develop a conceptual framework of hybrid control strategy based on measured data, weather forecast data and received data based on time pattern. The methodology of this paper is to review existing literature on climate adaptive building shells and adaptation mechanism via developing a conceptual framework for a hybrid control strategy for occupant’s comfort and energy efficiency. It is structured to provide a framework for examining design and management principles and their relationships between elements and components. The contribution of this study is to evaluate the design and potentials of the adaptation mechanisms and control strategies in the context of climate adaptive architecture. By using more efficient control systems and mechanism, sustainability related to energy conservation of the building can be enhanced.
