Abstract Merging sustainable design and energy usage in developing economies is one of the most significant architectural design challenges. This paper outlines the process of an architectural design project at Skidmore Owings and Merrill from 2006-2007. The project is a 250 room hotel in Hyderabad, India bolstered by a government economic incentive which encourages tourism and informed by environmental sensitivity and parametric computer models. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate that thorough understanding of both the external environment and the internal environment combined with clear understanding of client goals, computer simulation, and knowledge of fabrication techniques can result in a successful passive designed architecture which can significantly reduce energy demand and increase indoor quality.
