Résumé
In recent years the entire globe is facing the risk of global warming and the depletion of fossil fuels reduction in energy consumption along with sustainable development is a priority for many countries which includes India Today we generally acknowledge that the building sector consumes about one third of the total energy consumption worldwide and this may vary according to the building type and location With technological advancements in heating air conditioning and illumination a high degree of comfort within the buildings is achievable even in the adverse climates But as a result the wisdom of designing with climate was often ignored In hot humid climate around 60 percentage of people in India are opting for mechanical means of ventilation whereas in cold climate one would prefer for an oversized heating system The design of the building could be the same whether placed in the arid desert or the snow bound mountain With energy emergencies and shortages from 1970s high energy used to create comfort in the buildings became apparent thus making climatic design and energy efficiency important In traditional methods architects and builders used to design with respect to local climate and nature which decreased the environmental pollution and energy consumption India is constantly in the state of energy crisis thereby research to reduce energy consumption in the building sector through climate responsive strategies without compromising human comfort is essential

Mots clés : Architecture and planning building physics phenomenon thermal comfort Traditional architecture Vernacular buildings visual comfort
