The main climatic concept that we wanted to integrate into the design in order to achieve the goal of creating an energy-neutral building is that of a climate cascade. This means that we use the natural flow of rainwater (in a climate cascade) and a solar chimney to help in the ventilation of the building and by doing this, reducing the energy consumption of the building. From the start, the integration of this climate cascade meant that the building was supposed to develop around a central core that would host the climate cascade. It also meant that we needed to carefully calculate which areas of the buildings were the most exposed to solar radiation. These two factors contributed to the final shape of the building.
