Sumbul Afreen [2] | Mohammad Sabahat | Salman Nasir Khalil

Abstract: The use of passive technologies in the buildings are emerging since last few years as sustainable design solution. Architects are using many passive techniques like evaporative cooling, wind towers, adaptive fenestrations etc. , to create sustainable buildings. Presently there are many examples available in India in this regard. Many buildings are especially designed with the fusion of modern and passive technologies in the hot and dry climate of Indian subcontinent. This paper compares the various passive strategies used in the transitional spaces of institutional building of Jaipur. It also recommends various design considerations to be preferred while designing the transitional spaces in institutional buildings. It is observed that the use of passive technologies in the transitional spaces helps in lowering down the temperature and providing thermal comfort within the spaces.
