So how exactly do you go about designing an eco-resort on the beaches of Mexico? You start by using modern-day tools like AutoCAD design software. AutoDesk, the maker of AutoCAD, is helping to drive sustainable design awareness and adoption by highlighting current and future sustainability projects.
Recently, the AutoDesk Sustainability Center profiled Playa Viva and its architect Michel Lewis (pictured). In the articles, learn how Michel draws inspiration from 18th and 19th century architecture to solve modern day design challenges. His bioclimatic approach takes advantage of breeze and shadows to help keep beach houses cool and comfortable in the summer. Learn also how he’s using the gift of technology and inspiration from nature to change awareness through sustainable design.
