The process of architectural design, amongst others, can be likened to solving a crossword puzzle. Every little piece at some time must fall into place and, what is more, in a creative manner. In practice, it is only too often that we take a one side approach to design depending on our background, our interest, our talent or circumstances of the moment. We exaggerate part of the whole process and ignore what we do not want to address. The issues that enter the process of architectural design can be divided into the general ones that relate to every project, every time, in any part of the world, under any circumstances, and the specialised ones which only occur under special circumstances. One of the general issues which, during recent years, has been very much neglected is that concerning a sensitive bioclimatic approach to design. There are a number of reasons why this has come to be so. Many times it is due to a mislead architectural education or because the architect is afraid of and believes that these issues are purely technical, or because he believes that his artistic creativity will be restricted or lastly just because he can afford to do so. Unfortunately the waste of energy of our present day society has enabled him to behave in this irresponsible manner. There are far too many reasons to enumerate why this situation is both illogical and catastrophic. It has been proven that it is not enough to convince the architect by telling him that it is his duty to care, to take into consideration the depletion of nature and the breakdown of our ecosystem, to preserve our remaining natural resources and to save both money and energy.
