This Special Issue aims to focus on the latest research and applications of architectural, structural and material sustainability solutions. Improving the durability properties of materials and structures is of great importance in terms of sustainability.
As a result of technological developments in the field of architecture and construction, recently, we have witnessed the realization of the development of wooden, metal and concrete solutions, high/ultra-high-performance concrete, self-compacting concrete, high-performance cement-based composites, reactive powder concrete, processed cement composites, fiber-reinforced cement-based composite, geopolymer concrete and similar concretes are still in development. Over time, concrete structures can no longer perform their functions efficiently due to chemical and physical external effects. The most important reason for this is that they are adversely affected by the environmental conditions they are exposed to. This situation is directly related to the durability properties of concretes, with studies on the development of concrete having focused on this issue in recent years.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Architectural, structural and material sustainability solutions;
- Material and structural safety;
- Structural vibration mitigation;
- High/ultra-high-performance concretes;
- Self-compacting concretes;
- Fiber-reinforced cement-based composite/concretes;
- Reactive powder concretes;
- Engineered cementitious composites;
- Geopolymer concretes;
- Durability properties of all types of concretes;
- Development of all types of concretes for sustainable structures.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
