'Make Buildings Better':
Design buildings to allow the transport of warm stuffy air, often the case in basements and or highly densely populated rooms, to adjacent rooms that may be cooler. This could be done with vents, maybe incorporate some sort of negative pressure mechanism if it was needed. This allows a sort of thermo-regulation to take place across the building that would curb temperature extremes and create nicer working/living environments for people, all by using very little energy.
