Summary

The publication is conceived as a brief collection of thoughts about current urban challenges and how the architectural profession can contribute to turning them into opportunities. Tackling urban challenges requires a renewed focus on the environmental and socio-cultural dimensions of design - and all of these dimensions should be addressed in an holistic manner, at different spatial scales. Going beyond the usual notion of ‘sustainable design’, the publication develops the notion of 'responsible design', defined as a quality-oriented design, geared to the production of an integrated, energy-conscious, inclusive and adaptable built environment.
