Today’s architects and builders are increasingly focused on how to create structures that have less impact on the natural environment. Climate-responsive architecture is a design practice centered on creating buildings that function in lockstep with the local climate, not in spite of it. It is simple in concept but more complex in execution. While every project is unique, especially when it comes to the site-specific environmental conditions, there are several best practices to follow for designing a climate-responsive building.
This white paper goes into detail on how this concept is evolving and what it means for those who design, own, operate and occupy buildings.
