Climate Responsive Building Design: Looking Beyond the Facade
by Shrikar Bhave

Our world deserves better than building-as-usual – over-engineered systems supporting static, placeless, unhealthy and uninspiring environments. Design and engineering must work together to reimagine the spaces that shape our lives.
Transsolar is an international climate engineering firm determined to create exceptional, highly comfortable indoor and outdoor spaces with a positive environmental impact. Transsolar fosters innovation in built environment with an aim to create architecture that is user centric, site specific and dynamic with a sense of identity and delight. This lecture will shed light on what drives climate responsive building design through a variety of Transsolar’s project case-studies in different parts of the world. The lecture aims to demonstrate that sustainability is not separate from design, but an indispensable component that enhances the experience of the built environment.
