Social Responsibility

Architects are increasingly and rightly obliged to use products that make sense from an architectural point of view and to take responsibility for their social relevance. The field of social responsibility in architecture is infinite. It should therefore be divided into three main categories with five sub-categories each.

This categorization is also the basis for the evaluation of the presentations.
