About us

AUS ARQUITECTES

AUS defends sustainable habitats for the well-being of the planet and its inhabitants. We seek a world that combats climate change, minimizes energy demand and waste, and preserves natural heritage. We are committed to an architectural and urban model that is carbon-free, efficient, culturally rooted and a driver of social transformation.

MISION

The health and well-being of its inhabitants. We believe it is necessary, therefore, to promote best practices within the profession that contribute to this transition, to demand legal frameworks consistent with decarbonization goals and financing tools, and to raise awareness in society at large. But we will not build this vision of the sustainable architecture we need out of nothing, but by influencing the processes that are determining the future. We will build visions by working on the problems that arise now and at every moment.

We therefore believe it is necessary to promote best practices within the profession that contribute to this transition, to demand legal frameworks consistent with decarbonisation goals and financing tools, and to raise awareness in society at large. But we will not build this vision of the sustainable architecture we need from scratch, but by influencing the processes that are determining the future. We will build visions by working on the issues at hand now and in the moment.

Vision

We want a more sustainable world, with development models that contribute to the mitigation and adaptation to climate change, to the reduction of global energy demand and waste production, and that ensure the correct conservation of natural heritage. We believe in a different vision of the territory, of recovering its productive potential, both in terms of resources and of management and habitability models. For this reason, we believe that we have to be part of the great territorial debates that determine the productive model that must contribute to a sustainable society.
