Event 2: Sustainable Innovation

Date: Thursday 24 October 2019

Speakers: Jonathan Hines – Architype - AJ100 sustainable practice of the year 2019
Paul Younger- Hewitt Studios - BD sustainability architect of the year in 2014

It is our duty as architects to design responsibly with the future of our planet in mind and not just what satisfies the client’s short term needs. We need to step up and begin designing all our projects with sustainability at the forefront of everything we do.

Join us in lectures by two leading architects for sustainable design, as they discuss how they challenge the conventional view that sustainable design is boring, complex and expensive and instead ensure that every single building they design has sustainability integrated into it from concept to construction.

By tackling these challenges pragmatically, we as architects can reach a more sustainable future, to be active in driving change forward and not taking “no” for an answer.
