The Unit is part of the visiting professors program of the Master of Architecture Year 1 Spring Semester 2020. Its research focuses on key global concerns such as environmental issues, climate change, increasing social and economic inequalities, mass tourism, waste management and growing population by exploring the limits of habitation in severe environments. These habitats represent a unique testing territory for human settlements because of its inherent climatic singularity. Understanding the performance of architectural proposals in these areas is essential to anticipate what might become standard in the rest of the planet for years to come. The research through design proposes schemes for specific sites while addressing issues such as the latest technological breakthroughs, vernacular tradition and local identity. The aim is to produce a coherent concept to cope with the exposed facts for each scenario.
