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 Long Life, Low Energy lecture 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 Property UK
- Fabrizio Varriale, Place and Space Analyst, Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors
We then invite you to join us for a drink afterwards and to continue the conversation at House of Architecture, 66 Portland Place, London.
