The essay gives an overview about the way the environmental theme is declined in detailed design in the current Italian and international practice, with particular attention to the influence on the choice of constructive and material solutions, based on a literature review, as well as on the direct experience of some Italian design studios strongly oriented to the integration of environmental aspects into the project. It is also based on experiences gathered in working group composed by sector stakeholders.
In particular, criticalities and obstacles, possibilities for improvement and advantages achieved by a detailed design capable of integrating environmental aspects are highlighted, outlining the current (and possible future) professional skills and tools.
