This volume deals with the theme of the sustainable approach to architectural design through the presentation of a number of final thesis, developed as part of the master's degree program ?Architecture for sustainable design' of the College in Architecture, Politecnico di Torino. The methodology adopted is based on the concept of complexity of the project, and on the declination of sustainability of buildings, in the environmental, social and economic aspects. The final thesis described represent an opportunity and application of the design process, both technological and architectural, to case studies with different uses and localization in different international contexts.
