Description

A breath of fresh air – how can we bring back natural ventilation?

Tuesday 28 November, 6.30pm - 8.00pm

The Building Centre, Store Street, London WC1E 7BT


Part of the City Conversations series, this event will discuss whether we are entering a new era of passive design and environmental engineering and how we should prepare for it, if this is the case.

Active cooling systems are the default response to overheating in city buildings. Sealing the envelope to protect the interior from noise, dust and fumes is the justification. But many believe we are entering a new era where reduced impact from new technologies and cleaner cities – electric vehicles being the prime mover will change this development dynamic. A greater understanding of the impact of ‘control’ on the wellbeing of occupants is also a driving factor.


Panelists include:

– Sue Roaf, Professor of Architectural Engineering at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh

– Chris Twinn, founder of Twinn Sustainability

– Jack Harvie-Clarke, director of Apex Acoustics

– Steve Williamson, director and partner at Happold Foundation (Chair)

'City Conversations' is a series of informative thought-leadership discussions around the big issues that are changing our cities growth, technology, resource efficiency and climate change. The conversations will address not only the new and changing infrastructure of cities but also how these are brought about and their impact on the lifestyle and wellbeing of citizens.

City Conversations are produced by The Happold Foundation with ngenuity Ltd and supported by The Built Environment Trust.
