Read identity magazine's January edition on ISSUU or grab your copy

The start of the year brings with it not just the promise of new beginnings but an opportunity for the architecture and design (A+D) community to champion sustainability and embrace a greener perspective.

In the face of environmental challenges and a growing consciousness about our ecological footprint, accentuated with the hosting of COP28 in the UAE, the regional A+D industry finds itself at the forefront of a pivotal movement. This issue is dedicated to the pioneers, the visionaries, and the architects of change who are steering us toward a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future.

Within the pages of this edition, you will encounter a curated selection of projects that go beyond the conventional, demonstrating a commitment to sustainability in their design ethos. From energy efficient structures to biophilic wonders, these projects serve as examples of inspiration, proving that aesthetics and eco-friendliness can coexist harmoniously.

As we celebrate the strides made in sustainable design, we recognize the collective responsibility we bear. I encourage each reader to consider how, in their own capacities, they can contribute to a greener future. Afterall, every effort counts.

In the spirit of collaboration, we invite our readers to share their own ideas, projects, and initiatives that champion sustainability throughout the year as they will always be fascinating to us. If you have a story to tell or a project that exemplifies the merging of aesthetics and eco-friendliness, our pages are open to your contributions. Let us amplify your voice and collectively propel the A+D industry toward a greener horizon.

As we embark on this journey into a sustainable and design-rich year, may this edition of identity be one of many that showcases design excellence. We are excited to announce our tie-up with the January edition of Maison and Oject, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary in Paris this year. So, if you are visiting or exhibiting at the fair, feel free to reach out and we would love to hear more. identity has a lot more collaborations coming up this year, which we will be announcing on our platforms in the coming days. All in all, it is an exciting year ahead. 

Wishing you a year filled with innovation and creativity.
