Learning Bio-Climatic Analysis : Redefining the Process for the Web".
All credit goes to him and his contributions...
project grew out of the need for a clear, concise and easy-to-understand way for
architectural students/professionals to learn Bio-climatic analysis. There is
text available on the topic but one has to consult a few books before and indeed
if, it becomes clear. Looking to do bio-climatic analysis on a particular city,
(Peyush Agarwal) experienced firsthand the confusion amongst conflicting
theories and difficulty of the concepts. Compound this by having to track the
analysis process through multiple publications, and one begins to appreciate the
idea of a centralized set of information on the subject, with the sole aim of
teaching the reader how to do bio-climatic analysis."
"(Peyush Agarwal) chose to present this work on
the Web because it would be accessible to many across the globe, and that he
could use the inherent qualities of the medium to explain the process of
plotting on the charts better than that from a written medium. Also, the
tutorial would have the potential to be used for long-distance/ correspondence
learning and classroom instruction."
