Abstract

Indian cities are urbanizing rapidly and massive building construction is underway to respond to the rise in the Indian economy. Built environment make up for 40% of carbon footprint and environmental pollution. This is causing global warming, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, desertification and climate change. Most of the urbanization in the coming decades will occur in the tropical regions like coastal Karnataka with warm and humid climate. This paper emphasizes the need for environmental sustainability and climate responsive passive design strategies while designing new building developments to mitigate the negative effects of urbanization
