Book Description
The book envisages to re-create the process by which buildings and entire habitats can be designed to respond to nature with climate as the basic parameter of design-without sacrificing a holistic approach to design. With the imminent threat of exhausting natural resources, architecture must respond to the ecological context and become a means of regenerating natural resources. `Climate Responsive Architecture` is therefore a prime issue of architecture. Since most of the literature in this area is presented in a manner that it appears physics oriented, it becomes difficult for architects to apply the principles to practice. This book has been written with a view to make: Climate parameters the basic paradigm of design; Related data and principles easily comprehensible The handbook is an outcome of longstanding research in the area of climate responsive architecture and includes contribution from internationally acclaimed architects and building scientists-Dr Nick Baker, Prof Szokolay, Prof Simos Yannas, Prof Jeffrey Cook and Prof Arvind Krishan among others.
