> tempering of the natural environment------ based on local cultural  
> and climatic conditions------ with the basic necessity of providing  
> shelter. Their lecture, Integrated Design: Concept, Process,  
> Realization, will explore the ways in which architects can create  
> buildings which are better integrated in our world and place less  
> strain on our environment through the process of building.

> Collaborative Work of Behnisch Architekten and Transsolar  
> KlimaEngineering in McCormick Gallery through May 8. This exhibit  
> will showcase projects------ both realized and in process------ from

> Transsolar KlimaEngineering.  The exhibit provides insight into  
> their process and expression of sustainable design and demonstrates  
> that investigating solutions to current and potential environmental  
> problems poses both fascinating and rewarding challenges.
