QUAD 2017 is seeking design proposals that capture the essence of social sustainability by addressing the various factors contributing to the three pillars of sustainability: Environment, Economy and Equity.
Environmental sustainability, promotes a more conscious urban living with lower carbon footprint. In a built environment where resources are scarce, your proposal should consider efficient use, as well as post-installation applications of building materials.
Economic sustainability, encourages an efficient use of resources. the exhibit should achieve the greatest visual and experiential impact with the least amount of resources. The proposed design should also address ease of travel and speed of assembly.
Social sustainability, occurs when current and future generations are actively supported to create healthy and livable communities that are diverse and socially just. Proposals should envision meaningful and impactful spaces that facilitate social interaction, allow exposure to diverse backgrounds and create an environment leading to mutual respect and acceptance. Low-cost and/or digital interactive features are highly encouraged.
