Description

Living sustainable, a vision that I developed at the Design Studio Schwarz, University of Liechtenstein. Living sustainable raises questions about living in balance with our natural resources. We are living on costs of next generations, so we are responsible to make the changes with architectural interventions in our society for our society. Based on „World Energy Council“ report of 2011, our planet will have 2.2 billion inhabitants more on 2050, reaching 9.2 billion, by challenging a huge demand on mobility, food, goods and building as well. In order to having a bigger impact and a better control over growing up-mentioned demands, professionals have to take the first steps on treating these issues not only in universities, schools or other institutions, but to make aware also the common people, considering as main starting point where the „problems“ or demands start from. Better communication of sustainable architecture to the common people could help to understand that humans are living in a planet with limited bio capacity and their demands will have to be reduced and controlled by professionals, which helps living and growing future settlements in balance with nature and helps reducing their ecological footprint, as one of the most important aspect of sustainability.
