How to drive and design for climate neutrality?

October 19, 2021

This is the core issue that will be discussed during our roundtable “Climate Neutral Design Talks” on 27 October at ANCB (Aedes Network Campus Berlin). With the EU taxonomy and New European Bauhaus setting a strong precedent, there is no better time to push climate neutrality to the forefront of design.

The event takes place on the occasion of the exhibition “A Heart of Wood – Sara Kulturhus in Skellefteå” at Aedes Architecture Forum. It brings together protagonists from finance, architecture, and engineering to discuss the key challenges ahead for business and politics to steer towards climate neutrality. How will the EU taxonomy contribute? How can certifications clarify and support? What exactly is needed to set goals, find means and create drivers?

As it is both crucial to exchange best practice ideas addressing climate neutrality, as well as discussing it across discipline boundaries, I am very much looking forward to the discussion.
Max Zinnecker, Architect and Marketing Manager Germany at White Arkitekter

 

In the spirit of New European Bauhaus, it will also be discussed how new ways of practice and design contributes to climate neutrality. How can we maximise the use of existing buildings and structures? How do we adopt low emission materials and construction techniques, or minimise waste? How can we take a circular approach to existing materials? How do we design for low operational energy, or generate renewable energy?

 

In order for society to achieve global and national goals, it is vital to work towards the same objectives and strengthen collaboration both within and between industries and across national borders.

The event is free of charge and will be in English. If you would like to participate and follow the conversation, please click here for registration.

 

After the event, a visit to the exhibition “A Heart of Wood – Sara Kulturhus in Skellefteå” at Aedes Architecture Forum will follow, where one of the lead architects for the project, Robert Schmitz, will guide you through.
