Architecture can help to protect the climate in many different ways. Celebrating the ten-year anniversary of the eponymous Alpine-wide architectural prize for sustainable renovation and construction, the “Constructive Alps” exhibition presented by i2a istituto internazionale di architettura room focuses on the theme of “Climate Friendly Construction”. On show are innovative examples of climatefriendly architecture which were created in the Alpine region between 2010 and 2020.
Visitors can select projects at an interactive kiosk according to their personal interests. The journey leads to residential buildings, alpine huts, cultural venues, schools, and village community centres. By recognizing sustainably achieved construction projects over the past decade, Constructive Alps has been making a constructive contribution towards implementing the climate action plan formulated by the Alpine Convention. The exhibition encourages visitors to follow this example and think ahead. The exhibition is supported by the Swiss Confederation and the Principality of Liechtenstein, organized in collaboration and with the support of the Federal Office for Spatial Development ARE.
