Abstract

“Sustainable Development” – a notion that has become almost a cliché, What is really sustainable? From which perspective it is considered and how it can be translated – are the questions that the designers are seeking today. After thirty years of search we have arrived at an understanding of sustainability as a practice, which goes beyond cost optimisation, affordability, technological innovation, energy consciousness, environmental sensibility and cultural conservation. All these issues are reflected in the art of Building, the Process of Design and sensible architecture. It must be a responsible gesture on the part of the architects/ Designers to consciously think and activate and induce the process of Sustainability. It is a holistic concept that we are embarking to figure out the right alternative for a specific use, site or context and client or its direct beneficiary. This is a process driven approach and therefore flexible, dynamic and adaptable.
