well it seems obvious to me that if we don't embrace sustainable practices and the population keeps on rising there is only one conclusion. One of the simplest ideas that I think might work is that…Continue

Dishan, this link would be a good start. It talks about passive home design strategies.

can some one help me by telling me a few technique which can make a design achieve sustainability?? for example by use of a particular material ,,,etc.........
Comment by Kalyani Dakshinamurthy on March 7, 2010 at 9:42am
Its really a great idea... of including Sustainable techniques in syllabus. I also feel that as Tyson has noted... the clarity of " What Really sustainable means " - is really important.. I would like to add some points .... There is a need also to understand and explore Vernacular Architecture and possibilities to Adapt them in our designs.... which probably leads us to sustainability....
Comment by Dishan Soni on March 6, 2010 at 12:48pm
yes,i too agree that d lifestyle of people plays a major role in making sustainable design, but also i guess, the institutions teaching architecture should also include sustainable techniques in syllabus, which would also help future architects to implement sustainable techniques more easily in any of d projects bcoz as a student i'm facing lot of problems in finding ways to make a design sustainable,
Comment by zenobia irani on March 6, 2010 at 3:20am
thanks tyson .i too agree to this.......this will take time to spread but atleast there should be some start on the world wide screen.
Comment by Tyson on March 5, 2010 at 10:37am
I guess what I'm saying is that the Architecture we build is a result of our individual lifestyles. When we decide to change our lifestyle habits in areas like energy consumption then it will be easier for architects to market and sell sustainable solutions to these larger problems. I think you're right that this seems to be gaining importance more and more.
