AJ launches The Green Rethink, a conference to radically redefine sustainability

  • Comment

Dr. Ken Yeang, Sir Terry Farrell, founding partner of Farrells, Simon Thurley, chief executive of English Heritage and Patrick Bellew of Atelier Ten will all be speaking at The AJ’s inaugural Footprint Live conference

Footprint Live: The Green Rethink on 26 November will take a groundbreaking look at the future of green building and consider the future of sustainable housing development, city building, the adaptation of existing and listed heritage buildings, green policy and regulation. Its ambition is to radically rethink sustainability from an economic and social, as well as ecological, perspective.

Taking place on Tuesday 26 November at the Royal College of Physicians in London, and hosted by AJ editor Christine Murray and AJ Sustainability Editor Hattie Hartman, additional speakers include Alan Shingler, chair of The RIBA Sustainable Futures Group, Bill Dunster of ZedFactory, Julian Robinson, Director of Estates at the London School of Economics, Matt Bell, group head of external affairs at Berkeley Homes and Simon Sturgis of Sturgis Carbon Profiling.

AJ editor Murray said, ‘We want to radically reconsider sustainability. Too often we’ve found the green debate in architecture too narrow in scope. That’s why we want you to help us radically redefine sustainability on 26 November. What is more green than a building well-conceived and built to last, flexible in its use, socially and fiscally responsible, well-connected and easy to retrofit?’

Sessions range from discussions on the future development of housing, building green and tall, and what to do with existing stock and heritage assets. There will also be a session on emerging green technology and specifying green, with briefings on Part L and Soft Landings.

Case studies on green architecture will be presented by Willie Carey of O’Donnell & Tuomey, speaking about their landmark building for the London School of Economics, and Gerard Maccreanor of Maccreanor Lavington, speaking about their Blackfriars Road mixed use scheme, with more speakers to be announced soon.

A dedicated panel on Regulation - from Part L and Soft Landings to post occupancy evaluation - will address the crucial area of green policy.

With case studies, analysis and critical business insight, Footprint Live: The Green Rethink is the opportunity to get the insider information you need to skill up your business and win more work.

Footprint Live: The Green Rethink is taking place on Tuesday 26 November at the Royal College of Physicians in London.
