Abstract

The book brings together the research of Michele De Lucchi and AMDL CIRCLE and sets it in a dialogue with experts from different disciplines who reflect on how spaces are designed: a subject that is not the sole prerogative of architects but one that now, more than ever, needs a multidisciplinary and all-encompassing approach in order to have a beneficial impact on the quality of life.

What can we as architects do for the world to come? We can use eco-friendly materials, we can adopt the most sophisticated technologies, but if we do not get used to thinking with a sustainability mindset, building the greenest house in the world will not make the slightest difference, because inside we will be continuing to behave like irresponsible consumers. Consequently, we must intervene with a new way of thinking, one born today for the world of tomorrow: through the qualities of the space we can foster that mutually beneficial behavior that enables people to get along well together. This is why we have created the Earth Stations, visionary architectures developed to cultivate human relationships. (M. De Lucchi)
