Opening of the 2nd Edition of Sos – School of Sustainability

cases_imageSOS is a post graduate school promoted by the studio Mario Cucinella Architects in Bologna, focused on training new professionals in the field of sustainability, able to meet the challenges of the future and lead transformation processes.

SOS is open to creative young people and researchers, professionals and companies in our sector to develop innovative projects with a positive impact on society, economy and environment through research and experimentation.

SOS is a creative laboratory born by a close collaboration between the architectural studio Mario Cucinella Architects (MCA) and the non-profit organization Building Green Futures (BGF), where training is inspired by real projects and lives in the studio. The sharing of tools, a prototyping laboratory and the daily interaction with the business world offer a unique educational experience strongly oriented to the professional world.

SOS 2016 course will focus on four key issues related to sustainable architecture and product design.

The four courses are:

– Architecture as a Social Business, to regenerate the urban environment

– Post Carbon Architecture, to design the next generation of buildings

– The Right to (Quality) Shelter, to sustain human development and build resilience

– Blue Design, to promote innovation and advanced sustainability for industrial design

The second edition will start on the 14th of March 2016.
