"To reach sustainability we need to transform thinking. ECOWEEK is a way to go opposite.

Jean Robert Mazaud, S'PACE Architecture

"ECOWEEK offers a platform to exchange creative ideas and knowledge about green architecture and urbanism. ECOWEEK is more than a workshop; it is a motivating experience that weaves the enthusiasms and fresh visions of students with the expertise and experience of professionals to challenge architectural conventions and to engage with the potential of green architecture and urbanism. ECOWEEK is a green adventure, to open up our imaginations and allow us to design great and gorgeous cities for people.

Marta Pozo, MVRDV

We are very excited to work on a real project. This is what makes the philosophy of ECOWEEK so interesting and the students' work so rigorous.
