Sustainability was the theme during Expo Revestir's first afternoon of the International Forum of Architecture and Construction. The annual event is taking place March 9-12, in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Italian designer Massimo Iosa Ghini, and American architect George Elvin explained the importance of applying sustainable techniques both in the creation of design objects, as in large architectural projects. The designer sees architecture as a form of design and vice versa. The most important aspect of his work: combining the language of quality with sustainability, said Ghini.

George Elvin brought to the Forum the concept of nanotechnology, fully applied in his projects. When the formulation of molecular materials are modified, Elvin said it results in a more “resistant product, making buildings safer, cleaner, stronger and more tenable, using less material in the whole process to achieve the same results in the work.”FULL STORY
