Buildings are located in places.  Each place has a unique climate.
How architecture adapts to specific conditions determines how effective, and how efficient, it can be.

The Planetarium must function not only in an educational and inspirational role, but also in a sustainable and responsible one.


A set of bioclimatic conditions have established a basis with which the proposed architecture must comply.

Using IES, an evaluation of the buildings performance can be undertaken to determine whether the proposal meets the goals that were established initially.
