2021 Global Architecture Exchanges: Climate change/sustainability – Topic 1, Session 2 of 2

This is Session 2 of 2 for Topic 1 in the 2021 Global Architecture Exchanges series: Climate change/sustainability – How do architects respond to climate emergency?

Topic 1, Session 2 was held on 10 June 2021. This session includes speakers from Australia, China, South Korea, Ireland, Japan, the UK, New Zealand

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 13 depicts that “Climate change is a global challenge that affects everyone, everywhere.” Explore how architects in different countries are tackling this universal challenge. How do architects across the world include sustainability and reducing the effect of climate change in their designs? We are discussing not only the practical steps and measures architects need to consider when designing a new building or spaces but also the links between technology, circular economy and architecture.
