Eco is not a dirty word


Sustainability is absolutely integral to the future of the built environment but there are still only a few companies that are creating truly innovative projects and developments. The speakers on this panel will explain the power of green design, with small boutique projects that wrap around trees, mega structures and sustainable strategies for healthy city development.

Zero carbon cities


What can we do to make our cities carbon neutral? The technology exists but we need good design coupled with developers and local government to make it a reality. This panel of experts will prove that zero carbon isn't science fiction, it's happening now and it's obtainable for everyone.

Chair: David Michon, freelance design journalist
Linda Thiel, White Arkitekter
Bill Dunster, ZEDfactory
Clare Murray, Levitt Bernstein
Becci Taylor, Arup

Brave new world


Architects and designers have historically played an important role in helping us visualise what our world might look like in the near future. By using cutting-edge technologies and radical forms, we are encouraged to look ahead and not back. However, restrained and rational projects have become the fashion in the recent years and this talk explores the work of a few brave souls that are creating the places and spaces of the future, inspiring the next generation.

Chair: Helen Parton, freelance design journalist
Aleksa Rizova, ALEKSA studio
Adam Nathaniel Furman
Dan Blaker, Nulty+
Stefano Dal Piva, ACME
