Architects Building Peace

What can architecture do to eradicate poverty? How can architecture assist in dealing with the scarcity of resources? How can architects work in the presence of ethnic violence? Architects Building Peace features the best stories of architects and engineers, from around the world, who have had the courage to leave the well worn path and getting involved. It is about architects who have never stopped training to be able to realize their dream: to help the poorest and disadvantaged communities in building better living conditions, and to help them become more resilient in case of natural disasters or wars; and to do it by themselves, with their own means, culture and technology.

reBuilding the Future: Culture

This volume explores architecture and work committed to fostering cultures. How to return to a cultural dimension where dialogue and differences regain that core value of mutual growth, which has proven, time and again, throughout history, to be a natural antidote against intolerance and totalitarianism? Today it seems that everything must be defined exclusively in economic terms, but what value does culture have?

reBuilding the Future: Healthcare

This volume explores architecture and work dedicated to improving the health and living conditions of disadvantaged populations and groups affected by disaster or war. The health crises that we witness on the horizon today cannot be tackled successfully unless we first solve the political problems that are the cause behind so much inequalities.
