In the Autumn 2022 edition of Living Architecture Monitor (LAM), our managing director Luigi Petito reflects on the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre report on “Drought in Europe – July 2022”, an assessment of Europe’s drought situation based on the European and Global Drought Observatory.

The report showed that a staggering portion of Europe was exposed to warnings (44 per cent of EU+UK) with serious consequences ranging from vegetation stress to severe impacts on farming and the energy sector (for both hydropower generation and the cooling systems of nuclear and thermal plants).

The LAM magazine is a quarterly publication first published in 1998.  It features in-depth interviews with leaders in the green building movement, opinions, research, and green roof and wall project profiles. Living architecture is the integration of living, organic systems with non-living, inorganic systems in, on, or around buildings. Living architecture is an important step to reconcile people and nature in the modern built environment.

In January 2020 we were asked to set up and run the European Chapter of the World Green Infrastructure Network. Another exciting task to improve the quality of urban areas and help cities to reconnect with nature.
