Booking has now opened for this year’s Green Sky Thinking week running from 28 April to 2 May
Now in its fourth year, the free event is Open-City’s annual showcase of London’s most innovative sustainability initiatives.
The theme for this year’s event is ‘Mapping Sustainable London’, which focuses on four key topics; performance, adaptation, value and livability.
The week-long programme of more than 50 talks, site visits and debates features a star-studded list of names including Hopkins, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Cullinan Studio, Bennetts Associates and Atelier Ten. Clients including Peabody, British Land, HS1 and Argent are also taking part with visits to key projects such as St Pancras International.
As part of the programme, the AJ is hosting a breakfast event on Tuesday 29 April at O’Donnell and Tuomey’s recently completed Saw Swee Hock Student Centre at the London School of Economics (LSE). LSE director of estates Julian Robinson will share insights on how a client selects an architect who can deliver a high environmental brief, and a panel will discuss how to ensure initial sustainability aspirations are delivered.
