Booking closes tonight for Green Rethink architecture summit

Don’t miss Tuesday’s event featuring critical insight from leading thinkers into the future of design at London’s Royal College of Physicians

The AJ Footprint Live 2013 inaugural conference: The Green Rethink - will include a series of TED-style talks with top-flight thinkers sharing their predictions on the direction design will take over the coming years, as well as insight into which way the wind is blowing for policy-makers and government.

The conference, taking place on 26 November at the Royal College of Physicians, London, broadens and redefines the concept of sustainability and asks how architecture can address economical and social issues, as well as global warming and ecology.

A special series of case study presentations by architects include an inspirational line-up of new green buildings, including O’Donnell and Tuomey’s new LSE building, Hopkins Architects’ WWF project and Enric Ruiz-Geli’s work for El Bulli Foundation

The full speaker line-up features 31 leading industry figures to address to crowd including Dr. Ken Yeang and Chris Wilkinson on building green and tall, Terry Farrell on the future of masterplanning and the outcome of the Farrell review, Simon Thurley of English Heritage on sustainability and listed buildings.

Senior clients, including Pascal Mittermaier of Lend Lease Europe and Matt Bell of Berkeley Homes will also address the audience. Other speakers include Patrick Bellew, Sadie Morgan, Lynne Sullivan and many more, see below for highlights or the attached file to download the complete programme.

The conference aims to radically redefine sustainability and predict the future of sustainable building design.

There are also specialist sessions on specifying green, alongside plain-spoken technical briefings on changes to Part L, Soft Landings and post-occupancy evaluation.

The conference is designed to enable architects to skill up their businesses to meet the future demand for buildings that are sustainable from a social and economic, as well as ecological perspective.
