DESIGNING FOR THE CHANGING CLIMATE
Vinod Gupta
LA 70
The article elaborates on a set of strategies and means adopted to address the issues of water scarcity and to conserve water in an institutional development, planned in the dry region of the country.
Climate change is here to stay. Because the gathering of world leaders at COP26 talked mainly of decarbonization as a measure to mitigate Climate Change, ordinary Indians feel they can do little about it. The architectural community sees energy-efficient buildings that they call ‘green’ and sometimes erroneously label as ‘sustainable’ as their way of mitigating Climate Change. For most rural and urban areas, Climate Change is already the cause of extreme heat waves and droughts, cloudbursts followed by floods and landslides, energy and water shortages, and sea-level rise with its slew of problems. We may build green, energy-efficient buildings for decarbonization, but architects and planners do need to adapt their designs and build resilience against natural disasters into them.
