SOS Team: an experienced and multisciplinary group of professionals

The SOS Team is made up of a variety of experts from the world of education, research and industry. Each member bears skills that are intertwined with the issues of sustainability, climate change, de-carbonization, sustainable development agenda and the transition to a circular economy.

The awareness to be facing an unprecedented challenge has pushed us to bring together knowledge and disciplines that were once separate into a single place where we can experiment good practices that allow us to return to the act that most characterizes human history, the transformation of the inhabited space, its full dignity as an accomplice of natural processes.

The SOS community includes architects, engineers, sociologists, anthropologists, artists and designers who, together with our students, experiment with new design avenues and good practices of social inclusion.
