URBAN WELL-BEING BY ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN
the power of architectural design to improve our daily living environment

Today architecture is much broader than only the art and practice of designing and constructing buildings. It is an interdisciplinary practice that takes upon contemporary environmental, economic and social challenges while embracing innovative technologies to find, develop and realize new solutions. But architecture still is, above all, a design practice.

Date: October 24
