[Bioclimatic design is climate-responsive design that pointedly addresses the human element of design. It captures the wisdom of regional, vernacular, or biomimetic precedent while allowing a freedom of architectural expression suited for modern sensibilities and global technical aptitudes. This chapter introduces the tenets and origins of bioclimatic design by referring to the writing and research of influential contributors to this topic. Bioclimatic principles form the basis of design philosophies like sustainable and regenerative design that recognize the interdependence of design, climate, nature, and culture. The chapter concludes with a “framework for analysis of bioclimatic architecture,” an organizational construct around which bioclimatic architecture can be evaluated and understood.]
