Bauhaus Earth and Pontifical Academy of Sciences conference, June 2022

The built environment is a critical factor in the climate equation since buildings and physical infrastructure are directly responsible for about 40 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Fortunately, there are many new ways to build better. These include timber high-rise buildings, circular bio-economy methods, AI-assisted design, serial prefabrication of building components, smart recycling technology, multifunctional land use, integrated regional resource management, and community-based urban development, to name just a few.

This volume compiles the papers presented by world-renowned academics, architects, spatial planners, and policymakers at the "Reconstructing the Future for People and Planet" conference, which was held at Casina Pio IV at the Vatican in June 2022.





First publication of the Bauhaus Earth think tank
Ideas to transform the anthroposphere
Contributions by Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, Ursula von der Leyen, Edgar Pieterse, Francesca Bria, Xu Tiantian, Shigeru Ban, Sheela Patel, Ana Maria Duran Calisto, and many others
