The ecological approach in architecture – which is marking with increasing interest the contemporary field’s debate – could have represented an important opportunity to reflect on current design trends. The rapid diffusion of the new trend of sustainable architecture transformed it instead into a bunch of technicalities and legislative regulations, following a strict bureaucratic - if not commercial - logic. So the so called “ecological culture” of the built environment design, fails not only to react to the globalizing technology, but transforms into a strictly technical culture that claims to globalize. This paper is taken from the author’s study for one of his books and it will face the theme framing its epistemological basis. The focus will be on the possible effects produced by the current situation, proposing some possible solutions to exit it. The paper will be divided into seven parts: “The age of globalizing technology”; “The metaphor of the Crystal Palace”; “Responsibility as an antidote?”; “From experimentation to the cage”, “Giants and ecological monsters”, “Regulations’ Perversions and the project”; “Conclusions”.
