About this title:

Synopsis: Today throughout the architecture and town-planning world, systems based on renewable energies are being studied, experimented with and created. This is not merely a response to an energy crisis that has involved our whole planet, but it reflects a renewed sense of ethics, one that leads us to want to act with economy, in harmony with the environment. Hence the desire to adopt essential solutions that are devoid of waste, that behave like biological beings, establishing relations not of conflict with the environment, but rather of friendship with it. This attitude connects back up with millennia-old traditions that, since the ancient Egyptian civilization, enjoyed extraordinary developments in the Roman, Islamic and Renaissance civilizations, but also in the humbler settlements of a recent past. And of course the methods used were "solar", for the sun is obviously the main source of renewable energy on which the fundamental natural goods depend: light, warmth, movements in the atmosphere, the climate. The most qualified architects throughout the world are working on these themes, which they are bringing up to date and extending using new technologies, concepts and methods: a great tradition that for too long had been forgotten.

Introduction by Cettina Gallo, Manfredi Nicoletti, Peter C. von Seidlein, Dionysis Zivas.

Written in English, with introductions also in Italian, German and Greek.

About the Author: GIULIA FALCONI is an architect and an assistant professor at the University of Rome, "La Sapienza".
