The architect community is not far behind in this endeavour. Climate Responsive Architecture has become a prime issue for architects. Since most of the literature in this area is physics oriented, it is somewhat difficult for architects to apply these principles to practice. The book has been written with a view to make data, such as climatic zones, temperature zones, and other climatic parameters more comprehensible. The book is the outcome of a long drawn research in the area of CRA and boasts of international names such as Dr Nick Baker, Prof Szokolay, Prof Simos Yannas and Dr Jeffrey Cook among others.
