An Architecture Guide to the UN 17' Sustainable Development Goals Denmark

PROJECT OVERVIEW: The book ‘An Architecture Guide to the UN 17 Sustainable Goals’ provides an architecture guide to all 17 goals, presents how each goal is defined by UN, outline how it interacts with the built environment and gives examples of realized projects that illustrate architectural contributions to each goal. The built environment, planning, architecture and design, interact with every goal. Not just on an aspirational level or as future potential, but through realized buildings, settlements and cities all over the world. The first edition of the book is dedicated to the architecture students who will shape the future of architecture, planning and design; to the politicians who will aid them by understanding the intersections between architecture and the goals; and to all citizens, professionals and institutions who join in the collective challenge ahead – to address social needs while protecting the planet. The book is created in a partnership between The Institute of Architecture and Technology at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation, the Danish Association of Architects and the UIA Commission on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
