We are living through serious problems of environmental
pollution, which causes great risks to the well-being of the population.
These problems are presented by the bad planning of urban growth, and
many times in very bad quality. Industrialization grows in the cities without
having an order and an appropriate planning to avoid the damage in our
environment. The construction sector is largely responsible for this global
pollution that is experienced today. As the years go by, architects aim to
improve the quality of their construction and improve our quality of life.
New projects arise with strategy and planning, developing a new type of
architecture which contemplates the damage it would do to the
environment and how this issue could be solved based on its construction
development. The profession of architects, or urban planners who are
involved in the development of cities, are responsible for creating new
developments by designing the impact of climate change. The architectural
community carries a great responsibility in designing with the flows of
materials, energy, climate change, causes and solutions in mind.
Architecture must involve sustainability in its construction process and
know how to implement it to cause an environmental impact to satisfy the
common welfare.
