In the climate change era, a rise in sea level temperature has led to many calamities. It has become important for architects to address these issues at the conceptual stage of design.

Wind induced computational design refers to the process of using computational tools to analyze the aerodynamic performance of a building in response to wind loads. It involves simulating the behavior of wind around the structure, and using the data to adjust the design, in order to minimize the wind induced forces and optimize the performance.This process can be used to connect and optimize other climatic factors like solar, radiation and wind.

The focus of this project is on developing an innovative method of precisely designing the shape of the building and form-finding methods based on weather data. This knowledge can be further utilized to make a cyclone resilient structure that can withstand heavy wind forces. This program consists of a primary school, disaster management office, and gymkhana for sports that can provide shelter during disasters.
