This year’s conference will explore how art and the principles of sustainable design can enrich the classic architectural qualities as described by the ancient Roman architect Vitruvius: firmitas, utilitas, and venustas, which roughly translate to durability, utility, and beauty.

  • firmitas, including materials, human health, lifecycle perspectives, and structures;
  • utilitas, including building systems, comfort, and energy and resource use;
  • venustas, including public art, biomimicry, and site design.
