Confirmation seminar: Climate friendly urban design: A comparison between Australia and India

Urban design is concerned with the arrangement, appearance and function of suburbs, towns and cities. It is both a process and an outcome of creating localities in which people live & engage with each other, and the physical place around them. In the past, the buildings were built in harmony with nature, with an interaction with the physical space in which they were set. Thus, such buildings had lesser need for energy as compared to energy hungry buildings of today that fail to connect with external climate and environment. The purpose of this research is to study the urban design tools from the planning and design strategies of the past, examine their relevance in the present context and enquire their inclusion and implementation in policies & regulations pertaining to climate change in built environment, in Australia and India.
