Urban Planning & Architectural Design for Sustainable Development – 5th Edition

The 5th Conference on “Urban Planning and Architectural Design for Sustainable Development” (UPADSD), follows the success of previous versions in 2015, 2017, 2018. It is concerned with the concept of sustainable development and the different approaches that have become essential to modern development and energy efficiency.

To be a sustainable city, it must be designed with consideration of the environmental impact, for example, decreasing traffic congestion and using sustainable materials in constructions. A commitment to sustainable architecture encompasses all phases of a building including the planning, building, and restructuring. Sustainable development is the development that meets the needs of today and

AD Classics: Roman Pantheon / Emperor Hadrian

Locked within Rome’s labyrinthine maze of narrow streets stands one of the most renowned buildings in the history of architecture. Built at the height of the Roman Empire’s power and wealth, the Roman Pantheon has been both lauded and studied for both the immensity of its dome and its celestial geometry for over two millennia. During this time it has been the subject of countless imitations and references as the enduring architectural legacy of one of the world’s most influential epochs.

The coffers in the Pantheon’s dome, aside from their aesthetic qualities, serve to reduce the weight of the dome on the support structure below.

Città della Scienza Masterplan Predicts Future of Self-Sustaining Cities

Developed for an international planning and architectural competition, this proposed masterplan for the Città della Scienza by Vincent Callebaut Architectures, coffice - studio di architettura e urbanistica, and Studio d'Architettura Briguglio Morales fuses sustainability with history to propose a self-sufficient urban ecosystem in Italy. Operating on the principle of living facades, the Città della Scienza revitalizes the forgotten military district into a vibrant, continually regenerating living city.

Read on after the break for a closer look at the plan.

AD Classics: Casa "Il Girasole" / Luigi Moretti

As one architectural scholar described it, Luigi Moretti’s 1950 Casa “Il Girasole” is “a bit of madness on the solidity of Roman walls.” [1] Yet, this clever apartment building in the heart of Rome is far from the work of a madman. Its subtle historical allusions and deliberately ambiguous composition betray the genius of the architect’s creative and analytical mind. Moretti, whose notable commissions include Villa La Saracena (1957), Montreal’s Stock Exchange Tower (1964), and the Watergate Complex (1971), achieves a complexity of form and materiality in “Il Girasole” that distinguishes the project from its mid-century contemporaries and has earned it recognition as one of the earliest forerunners of postmodern design.
