Designing WITH Climate

Worship of technologically-determined solutions that attempt to transcend local conditions has bitten us in the butt. This mentality, born out of the idealized formalism of modernity, has truncated the feedback loop of 'design-build-evaluate' that in vernacular architecture, spans generations and hundreds of years. With resources that privilege bio-climatic thinking, sustainability, respect for the sun, and savvy evaluation tools, this collection offers an alternative: to start designing WITH climate!
