High Mass Cooling
High Mass Cooling is good for warm, dry summers. The mass needs a heat sink to offload the heat. Common strategies include roof ponds on 1-2 storey buildings or earth heat sinks, such as earth covered walls and roofs.

Water is sprayed on the roof at night for cooling.

This method is also good for winter heating at lower latitudes.  Insulation panels are used to control heat storage and offload.
