Architects will host almost a third of the events at this year’s Green Sky Thinking Week (20-24 April)
As well as regular participants such as AHMM, Architype, Bennetts Associates, Nicholas Hare Architects and Hawkins\Brown, newcomers include Levitt Bernstein and Weston Williamson+Partners.
Mole Architects, 5th Studio and Pitman Tozer Architects will team up with Beyond Green to host a seminar on the housing crisis, while David Morley Architects will explore the topic of sustainable sports grounds.
More than 50 seminars will offer first-hand interaction with experts from cross-disciplinary teams responsible for London’s most pioneering projects from Crossrail to the Thames Tideway Tunnel. Backed by Open-City, the week will also focus on green infrastructure, energy, data and digits, and the health and wellbeing agenda.
Site visits remain a key attraction of the week: two different Crossrail sites will be open as part of the programme, as will the King’s Cross site,
with Argent focusing on water, while Bennetts Associates will offer tours of their recently completed BREEAM Outstanding offices for the London Borough of Camden.
The London Borough of Hackney is tackling the subject of district heating, while engineering consultancy Elementa – currently developing toolkits to roll out the WELL Building Standard in the UK – will host a PechaKucha-style event on workplace health and happiness in the WalkieTalkie’s sky garden. Book early.
The full programme will be available from 3 March at: greenskythinking.org.uk.
