The idea of the Special Series ‘Future Scenarios’ is to put the architectural project at the centre of debate as a complex phenomenon, able to build a synthesis of scientific, social, political and cultural points of view, in a period where the anthropocentric perspective has radically changed our approach to the environment, to construction, to technology and materials, given their impact and effects on scarcity of resources and moreover today to urban health.
