About Built Environment

In India, 20% of the population is in constant need of housing in both urban and rural regions and engineers and architects reach out to less than 3% of the population. A large percentage of population lives in homes that are either self-built or constructed with local assistance by those not formally educated. Most poor houses are self-built and it raises concerns of safety and healthy quality of living.

Incorporating passive technologies (that bring in natural lighting and ventilation), appropriate materials that provide natural cooling/heating inside the structure, can result in buildings that are inherently efficient in its use of energy. The Built Environment team works with vulnerable communities (migrant, labourers, street vendors, low-income households), providing access to safer and healthier environments, which directly impacts their overall well-being. The solutions are community driven, combine user and designer expertise to come up with efficient spatial patterns, ecological design techniques, alternative material usage and innovative financial models.
