Building Sense Now is a self-organizing grass root movement. The aim is to create a broad network of like-minded architects, engineers and designers who are going to work towards climate and cultural – sensible – buildings around the world. We want to share knowledge and experiences, both good and bad. Therefore there will be several events during the year.

Upcoming Events:

July 19th to 20th in Auroville, Centre for Indian Studies / Pondicherry, India
