Living without Air Conditioners

isn't easy. More so when you live in a place like Bhilwara. So the obvious thing to do is install air-conditioners and stop thinking. But the damage that ACs do to the environment puts your life at stake anyway. If not now, sometime tomorrow.

I've been trying to find out whether there exist architectural models which make us stay cool without ACs. So after a few days of searching, I have found these interesting bits:

Syrian Beehive Houses

Dano Secondary School
More on the same here.

And the most interesting place Green School in Bali, Indonesia. I want to open one such place too. Or rather many such places across the country. Or across the world. :)
