HARMONIOUS LIVING- An epitome of happiness
Updated: Jul 21, 2018
Nature is very important for the continuity of life on the earth. Everything on the earth is the part of nature and connected to each other for healthy survival and continuity of life in future. We should maintain the natural cycle and do not disturb it to keep the nature evergreen.
Architects and planners have attempted to create sustainable solutions to issues affecting architecture, design and city planning.
Being an architect who is diligently involved in animal welfare and plant conservation, I certainly believe that to bring a change at the macro level it is very important to introduce new schemes and educational reforms at the micro level i.e. the grass root level.

While designing it is of utmost importance to introduce Active and Passive Cooling techniques and use Natural Building materials. Using materials which blends building with site, has both stimulating and calming effects on people.
Natural elements should be taken more of an advantage rather than a downside.
For ex. if trees are present on the site it gives us an advantage of going organic and breaking the grid. Instead of cutting the trees the shape of the walls should be made to blend with nature. This reminds us of the great Indian architect Laurie Baker who used to shape his walls the way the trees were.
