By their nature, green practices are not at cross purposes to good design - which is after all, good business. Yet India’s progress in adopting green practices and promoting eco-friendliness is relatively behind that of other countries. The primary challenge to this is India’s slow pace of modernization and

Throughout history architecture has emerged and has been shaped by fundamental factors like climate and availability of natural resources.

Green building architecture is about using the principles of design, orientation and material science in a way that it strikes the right balance to reduce the impact of building activity, and aligning it with the broader objective of sustainable living.

India has rich traditions and history in holistic strategies for buildings and construction. Despite this, the sustainable buildings agenda currently receives limited attention in India. While there are some local initiatives promoting sustainable buildings which include research, pilot or advocacy projects, there is no

The key concept behind sustainable architecture is to build in a way that reduces or minimises harmful impact to the environment. I believe India has a strong history of creating sustainable and climatically sensitive architecture. Open building designs and local / climatically sensitive materials have been extensively

Sustainable architecture is at the epicentre of our practice. Through simulations and creating real time feedback loops, we look at optimizing primarily the form of the building deal with parameters relating to eco-friendly architecture. The second stage is careful selection of materials and specifications. The intent of

The Indian subcontinent has historically been at peace with nature for a very long time, principally because we have a much more equitable climate than most western countries. Vernacular Indian architecture has been extremely eco-friendly throughout most of recorded history, and it is reflected in the social fabric

Our lifestyles are becoming more and more carbon intensive each day. In the haste of our modern ways of life, we have consistently breached the limits set on us by our own planet. To quote Terri Swearingen: “We are living on this planet as if we had another one to go to.”

The modern era has flooded India with a sense of globalization and standardization. Concrete and brick have become the most used materials in our buildings today. Skill has followed suit and one can find teams for such type of construction readily in most of the places in India today. A recent import has been to imbue

The concept of sustainability is not a new-age phenomenon, but is an age-old tradition. Being a sub-tropical country, Indian architecture is inherently climate responsive. Verandas, courtyards, buffer zones, terraces and sun shading devices are not new to us. Today, we live in an age of pseudo sustainability. When we started

Nowadays, eco-friendly, sustainable and green are buzzwords. However, defining them in relation with building design is complex. There is an urgent need in India to extend the understanding of sustainable architecture with socio-cultural aspects in its production. Indian builders and architects have failed to recognize
