The notion of sustainable development is gaining momentum in Europe and is becoming popular across the continent among groups of architects who are patiently promoting sustainability as the basis of a new rationalism.
Architecture and society are moving on from the deconstructivist formalism of the 1990īs in order to readdress the fundamentals of a project: adequacy in structure, materials, energy and economics.
Addressed with the theoretical tools and techniques of sustainable development, these new projects are creating a renewed model for urban development which, while part of an alternative economic cycle, is becoming an integral part of European architectural and urban culture.
