Architecture Guide to the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals


The intention of this book is to provide an architecture guide to the Goals. The 17 chapters present how each Goal is defined by the UN, outlines how it interacts with the built environment and gives examples of realized projects that illustrate architectural contributions.

Many of the cases address more than one goal, but the aim here is not to explore sustainable projects in their full complexity, but to understand the Goals as they relate to architecture. All cases are realized architectural projects, planning initiatives and structures. Our hope is that the cases will form a basis on which to start a conversation about how the built environment can contribute to each Goal.
