  Exclusive interview with Solar Architect Rolf Disch in "Shashwat - Let Nature Be" annual magazine of GRIHA Council
  Rolf Disch Solar Architecture has built with the sun for 40 years. That is how the first homes worldwide were built that flip the energy bill upside-down. The homes sell their surplus energy into the public power grid because they produce more energy in total than they consume. And with that, a new standard is set: homes can become powerplants!
Stay tuned for the release of the 4th edition of Shashwat during the 9th GRIHA Summit 2017 themed-' Sustainable is Affordable'.

Italy's pollution-eating cement
More than 84,000 people in the country died prematurely owing to bad air quality. Milan remains one of the worst polluted cities, not only in the country but also on the continent. To combat this, scientists have developed a new type of photocatalytic cement that absorbs pollutants and turns them into harmless salts. Opened in 2015, the Palazzo Italia in Milan is one of the first buildings in the world to use pollution-eating cement.
Improving urban green spaces increase thermal comfort of citizens
Architect from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid has assessed the link between urban green spaces and the thermal comfort sensation of people. The results provide significant suggestions to improve thermal comfort of citizens.
Can cities get smarter about extreme weather?
Discussions around improving resilience and adaptation to extreme events often focus on upgrading infrastructure or building new infrastructure, such as bigger levees or flood walls. But cities also need new ways of knowing, evaluating and anticipating risk by updating their information systems.
