The main concepts of MORPHOS – Sustainable Empires, curated by Arch. Luca Curci (founder of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS, It’s LIQUID Group and International ArtExpo), are the unifying power of sustainable architecture and the relationship between man and the city.

Architects and designers have been invited to work on the theme of sustainable architecture and the relationship between man and the city.
