There are many existing solutions that focus on architecture and sustainability and illustrate how architecture can contribute to the realisation of the Global Goals.
NEW: A GUIDE ON DANISH ARCHITECTURE!
Can we build a better world?
There has been a lot of talk about the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) since they were adopted in 2015, but is it possible to see the intentions of the goals reflected in architecture? It absolutely is!
The Danish Association of Architects has published a brand new guidebook entitled “A Guide to Danish Architecture – Towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals” – available for purchase at the World Congress. It shows around 60 Danish projects, which all contribute to one or more global goal.
While some of the projects in the guidebook pay special attention to climate, resources and biodiversity, others have more of a social sustainability focus. What they all have in common is that they challenge common practice and show how architecture and the built environment are crucial if we are to create a more sustainable future for everyone.
