The architecture and design, more sustainable than ever

There is no doubt that in the world of design and architecture a transformation is occurring from a few years ago and the digital edition of the newspaper Expansion good reflected it very in his article "How it intends to design save the world".

No longer are exclusively looking for criteria of aesthetic and functional when it comes to carrying out a project: sustainability has become an also key feature.

And it responds to the trends of the past years, designed with the aim of respecting the environment without sacrificing aesthetic designs. Now it is not enough to give an attractive appearance to objects: the ecosystem matter and should avoid disrupting it.

Clearly an example of these trends in the field of architecture are intelligent buildings, that through sustainability and energy efficiency criteria no longer it produced changes in the environment, but that adapt to the same, minimising the environmental impact of the project.

Another example are the green covers, as days ago we published with the actions that it is undergoing Mercadona in some of its stores. It's covers that make insulation and which also reduce the "Heat island" effect in urban areas.

Expansion article also highlights the importance of sustainable urban furniture design and offers as an example the solar smart stops from the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona, that it displayed in its panels necessary information about public transport being totally self-sufficient, that is, they pose no energy cost.

But this movement sustainable and environmentally friendly is also reaching the design of smaller items also studying their aesthetic to the millimeter, These are containers of products such as drinks or grooming. But the article also focuses the "Eco-packaging", monomaterial and therefore easy to recycle, sustainable inasmuch as it increases the shelf life of the product and environmentally friendly.

Finally, highlight the contribution of vintage fashion to the sustainable design movement, promoting the recycling of materials and fabrics in order to create new aesthetic products alongside sustainable.

Ultimately, the design of the 21st century is no longer design if it is not accompanied by the concept of sustainability and Iberflora We want to continue to promote this movement design sustainable and responsible to care for the planet and hoping to reduce pollution and that our children and grandchildren can live in clean, sustainable cities.
