It is time to go beyond green architecture, having a much bigger environmental picture.
Architecture and urban planning need to become again practical tools for building sustainable and resilient lives (more than green buildings), in harmony with the ecosystem and local resources.
To do that, we need to turn the approach on sustainable architecture upside down, starting from the analysis of people needs and socio-economic trends.
Society, Environment, Economy are now in (R)evolution.
- Aging population
- Access to water, improved sanitation facilities, energy inequalities
- Extreme weather events
- Energy expenditures
They represent some of the many challenges affecting the communities.

It is time for a new Architectural Paradigm, giving to architecture its proper dignity and responsibility to be part of the (R)evolution, through the qualitative and aesthetic contribution of Academicians, Researchers, R&D members of industrial companies or professional offices, Practitioners, Startuppers or Postgraduate Students.
The result will be a collection of beautiful and creative (R)solutions to future challenges, becoming expression of the diversity of needs, culture, climate, landscape and economies.
