RIBA’s current exhibition Long Life, Low Energy: Designing for a circular economy shows how contemporary practice is proposing ways to create net zero architecture for the future. As part of the exhibition’s public programme, a series of three panel events will bring the conversation out of the gallery, each focusing on a different aspect of sustainability in architecture.
For the second event in the series, we will discuss the specification of materials, considering the best strategies for decarbonising architecture and the built environment, while also maximising the potential for future reuse. How can architects best use their often-limited resources to find the most sustainable solutions and how can we keep track of materials throughout their lifespan?
Chaired by architect, academic and environmental activist Duncan Baker-Brown, the event will bring together range of voices from across the built environment sector, each offering their own perspectives and insights:
Louisa Bowles, Sustainability Lead, Hawkins\Brown
Steve Gilchrist, Project Director, Grosvenor Group
Fabrizio Varriale, Place and Space Analyst, Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors
We then invite you to join us for a drink afterward and to continue the conversation at the House of Architecture, 66 Portland Place, London.
The exhibition Long Life, Low Energy: Designing for a circular economy will be open in the Architecture Gallery for the audience to visit before the talk.
Ticket price includes one drink.
