I am an environmental designer who values investigative design and research. I believe we can always learn more about our environment and this should be one of the first drivers in any design but is too often pushed aside. Bioclimatic analysis shoud be integrated fully into the design process and be present at every major step in order to achieve the best performance and most meaningful architectural expression. Sustainability is not just about benchmarks and awards, but rather about creating buildings and cities that address social, economic and climatic demands.
