Is the world better off with your building? ‘No’ is the answer in 99.9% of cases. Almost every building pollutes the air, water, soil and harms biodiversity. What if we turned that around and focused on contributing positively? If buildings purify air, water and soil, create biodiversity and generate more energy than we use? Then we heal the world with our buildings.
This book makes it clear in one fell swoop what needs to happen for buildings to contribute to a better world, and what your role is in it.
It explains in an accessible way how to build radically sustainable buildings and why it is not happening today. This book offers a new method with practical handles, tools and insights to get started yourself and especially with your team and partners.
It is a must for professionals involved in the creation of a building and unites all stakeholders around this sustainable ambition.
This event will be moderated by Peter Veenstra (landscape architect en co-curator IABR IT’S ABOUT TIME), the other speakers are Saskia van Stein (IABR director) and Vincent van der Meulen (architect/partner Kraaijvanger Architects).
