The wonders of great design

I am making my annual visit to the Indian School of Business in Hyderabad (I will report on rent data collected by students here in a couple of weeks).  The temperature is in the upper 90s F. today, and yet I was comfortable eating lunch in an open air setting, specifically here:


This is the atrium of the Academic Centre, which was designed by John Portman (the picture comes from the ISB web site).

The air flows so well through it that it is comfortable to sit in, even when the outside temperature is very high.  Portman thus created functional space that doesn't need to be air conditioned, even on beastly hot afternoons.
