Abstract

In the backdrop of the above quote, there is an emerging movement of architecture in India beginning to critically re-examine context in terms of climate, comfort, sun, locally available building materials and labour, construction methods and natural resources. Advancements in architectural science, computer modelling, material testing and collaborative on-site training are strategically utilized to provide architects with the profound understanding of context required for sustainable design. Five projects presented in this chapter in each of five climatic zones of India will exemplify the knowledge emerging from climatically and technologically optimized sustainable design, which is neither imposed from the outside nor is solely the product of local culture. All five projects reveal climate-responsive and technologically sound architecture that usher more consciously in sustainability thinking.
