> 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.
> On exhibition at the BAC Integrated Design Strategies: the

> KlimaEngineering in McCormick Gallery through May 8. This exhibit
> will showcase projects------ both realized and in process------ from
> the twelve-year collaboration between Behnisch Architekten and
> 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.
