The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the reflection on issues that were already on the architects’ agenda. Now it is a question of trying to put into practice what we have learned. On 9 October in the mini-course “Extreme Sustainability” we will discuss what can and must be done by passing certifications, what are the most advanced experiments, the ecological and economic impact of sustainability in architecture, the utopian visions that stimulate research. But also the very idea of sustainability, a word with many meanings that goes beyond the discipline.
While in the following appointments of October 16 and 23 we will talk about interiors: those shared and those of our homes.
The mini-course, in English, is aimed at students, professionals and enthusiasts interested in understanding what are the possible solutions and reasoning together with those who are involved in shaping cities, the most interesting and difficult system of aggregation of the human species in the same space. We will talk about sustainability with Massimo Lepore – TAMassociati, Margaret Steiner – White Arkitekter and Paolo Cresci – Arup Italia who have made this topic the focus of their research.
The course will take place on Friday 9 October on the Teams platform from 16 to 19:30.
You can interact with the speakers, ask questions and share comments live. To participate you need a computer and a good internet connection. The course will be registered. You can register here until 7 October. The course will only take place if an adequate number of enrolments is reached.
