Abstract: Climate change is seen as the greatest challenge to mankind. A big impact of such a change would be felt in cities and buildings. So we have to start thinking and prepare ourselves to adapt and become resilient to this change. Our aim is to design a high performance building that performs not only today, but also thirty years hence when a two degree Celsius rise in air temperature is predicted. We employ the use of an urban farm as the outer envelope and establish a meticulous balance between architectural quality and performance matrix. A novel concept of form follows performance propels the design process. Natural resources of wind and sunlight are utilized to the apex validated by simulations thus aiming to achieve a benchmark energy consumption of 150 kWh/m2.yr.
