Abstract: This paper describes the use of transient building performance in order to develop design guidelines for a portable library. This project has been introduced to the officials of Mansoura University-by our research group-as a solution for the problem of insufficient library spaces available for students and staff members in most of the faculties of Mansoura University as a result of increasing the numbers of enrolled students due to general population growth in Egypt. For example there's only one library reading hall for The Faculty of Engineering where thermal comfort and lighting is not acceptable especially in the summer.
