The workshop Tropical Architecture in the Anthropocene addresses the correlation between man-made and natural environments and investigates construction technologies for low-cost housing proto-types within tropical climate.

Besides the development of climate-adapted constructions the workshop will also test practices that combine housing infrastructures with natural systems (such as green roofs, climate adapted ventilation, new construction materials, etc.). The results of the workshop will serve for the preparation of a low-cost pilot project in the Amazon region that is aiming at innovating the Brazilian mass housing program Minha Casa, Mina Vida.
