Three big challenges of our time – the promotion of wellbeing of communities and their territories, the advanced solutions addressing emerging demand for housing, the regeneration of the existing building stock – were pivotal to three ambitious projects supervised by: Alessio Battistella, Andrea Rossi, Irene Giglio, Martina Ruini done in collaborations with municipalities and other partners from the industry and the world of research.
The meeting is open to students, young professionals and in general to the public that is wondering about what concrete initiatives can be put in place to deal with climate emergencies and the issues of regeneration of the social, economic and environmental fabric of cities and of the territories.
“Architecture must mobilize and take concrete actions – said Massimo Imparato, director of SOS – to prepare individuals, communities and businesses to tackle with the unprecedented challenges related to climate change“.
