  5. 5. CLIMATE RESPONSIVE ARCHITECTURE CASESTUDY: CREATIVITY HOUSING, AUROVILLE PROJECT DETAILS: Creativity, a residential community, has been conceived as having housing units grouped into 6 clusters of 50-60 members each A central spine or pedestrian street runs through the site in a crescent shape serving all 6 clusters. This street is thus the main area of interaction and several community facilities spill over to it. Another pathway running perpendicular to it links the recreation area and the green corridor, and provides a quiet walkway and ambience. The different clusters enclose a courtyard space that is semi-public, yet protected from the larger community. The individual units are separated from the interaction zone through the buffer of buildings for common facilities Climatic comfort is being emphasized by using insulating roofing material, cross-ventilation and appropriate landscape design. Apart from single and family units of varying sizes, there will be provision for 4-5 groups of singles to share common kitchenettes, living rooms and bathroom facilities to encourage social interaction and community building. Facilities for the whole cluster, such as common kitchen, laundry, internet, office, gym, TV and video room, and common study areas will encourage further interaction and avoid duplication. COMMON SPACES IN A CLUSTER BUILDINGS BUILT USING LOW COST MATERIALS DUPLEX HOUSE COMMON COMMUNITY SPACE Clusters included housing for all income groups and had common interactive space for all. Duplex houses also were built at a low cost and was affordable to all.
