Humankind is at a crossroads. A climate crisis that threatens ecosystems and rises social instability. A fast-growing population leading to Earth's resources being consumed faster than ever. A still in progress global discussion about racial and gender issues. A technological revolution disrupting societies and markets —including the design and construction field. And an economic and pandemic crisis as a stress test for all of us.
In this context, architecture has been navigating through sequential changes over the last twenty years with the rise and latter consolidation of new technologies, tools, formats, topics, scales, and interdisciplinary approaches, along with the emergence of the Internet that led towards a disruptive decentralization of the architecture production and discussion.
As part of ArchDaily's 2020 Monthly Topics, we want to highlight young, emerging practices that are providing innovative approaches, proposals, startup ideas, and solutions to these discussions. Tell us about what your practice says about the challenges we're facing, share your portfolio with us, and describe your contribution to the future of architecture and cities.
