Bioclimatismo en la arquitectura de Le Corbusier: El Palacio de los Hilanderos

Abstract : After the crisis of internationalism in architecture during the 1930s, the work of Le Corbusier changed toward a new sense of relationship with local culture and environment. Employing current bioclimatic procedures of analysis to study his projects, methodologies and works, we can know objectively early approaches to sustainability. The research, focused on Millowners Association Building (Ahmedabad, 1951) as an outstanding work in this period of change, reveals the environmental functionality of the proposals made by the Swiss architect. Architectural devices like the brise-soleil, the aerateur or the garden roof, were only different parts of a comprehensive response to climate. As a result, the work in shape and construction from a scientific perspective, became the core of an architecture adapted to the environment.
