UIA PROMOTES THE ‘RESET’ NORMS AROUND THE WORLD
The Institute of Tropical Architecture in Costa Rica developed a series ofstandards for sustainable building in tropical climates entitled RESET.
The watchword is ‘More design - less technology’ in these standards for certification approved by the Costa Rican government and applied across the country since May 2012, thanks to backing by the national institute of architects. Following an initiative by the Costa Rican College of Architects and Bruno Stagno, the Institute of Tropical Architecture authorised the UIA to diffuse and promote these norms so that architects working in similar contexts can take advantage of the conclusions and applications, which result from extensive and detailed research into sustainable construction in tropical climates. This action is part of Costa Rica’s contribution to the UIA Responsible by Design strategy.
