Infinite economic growth and construction on a finite planet is impossible. It is necessary to build in a more conscious and sustainable way, using advantages of the available natural resources.
I’ve always been more concerned about how our lifestyle and the way we consume contribute to making our planet healthier and greener. At CORE, I found the right place to develop my interests in practising responsible architecture and incorporating concerns and philosophies from lifestyle to architecture. For me, good architecture is a symbiosis between contemporary and sustainable architecture, existing in harmony with the planet and our infinite means. Conscious architecture offers us many possibilities, specially in the Algarvian climate, where it is easier to implement than anywhere else in Europe.
