How 'bout we build without the damned air conditioner?
I was on a video call with my able partner David Kim this morning. When the conversation turned to the elaborate requirements of the California Energy Code, he had what I thought was a really great idea. "What if we could build without air conditioning?"
I think that's genius. There are lots and lots of Architects and Sustainable Design people running around these days. If we can challenge that brain trust to design buildings that do not require air conditioning, I'm sure they could come up with all kinds of great stuff.
