Bioclimatic Architecture – Methods of Construction

Bioclimatic Architecture designs can be achieved in various methods.. A few of them like solar energy utilization and wind processing have been considered as expensive. Even though they need a higher investment it is time to realize their worth and need in the long run.
For inexpensive methods there are a few elements used in design facades or basic concept. A handful are jaalis, stack effect, cavity walls, rainwater harvesting, and most basic well known but lesser practiced natural lighting and ventilation and many more.


It is one of the most practical methods that can be implemented on house to house,areas or even commercial basis. In many parts of the world there is heavy rain for a part of the year whereas the other months are relatively dry. With the changing climate patterns due to global warming, various places are facing water shortage or extreme heat resulting in the same.

Water harvesting is collection of excessive run offs during rains and using it when required in an appropriate manner. It requires only a minimum arrangement of plumbing, storage and a catchment area.

The more the catchment area the more surface area of water collected. This might include the rooftops of structures as well as open areas with runoff which might not reach the water table to increase ground water levels.
