Abstract

We are currently addressing a significant problem all over the world which is the energy shortage combined with the issue of the high energy consumption of buildings. Within the current scenario, exacerbated by the consequences of the post-Covid19 pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the climate change, which aggravate the situation of the energy crisis at a global level, the contribution aims to show how architects and researchers are working to find strategies for sustainable solutions in the building sector, through a paradigm shift. The innovative vision is given by the approach to biomimetic science connected to the logic of innovative materials and new technologies, such as parametric design and nanotechnologies for new bioinspired skins for building envelopes.
