Fokus: Nachhaltig Bauen
Inputs and panel discussion on the topic of “Sustainable Construction”

with Silke Langenberg, Guillaume Habert, Roman Köster, Elli Mosayebi, Nicolas Grandjean, Reto Mosimann, ZAS* , Jean-Daniel Gross, Markus Leuthard und Andreas Zimmermann

Building is one of the most resource-intensive human activities – and yet it is essential to our existence as human beings. We shape our environment and operate in this space, which manifests itself in a unique building culture. Given today’s climate, economic, and social challenges, we are striving for a more sustainable building culture.

But how do we define sustainability in a context as complex and diverse as building? And how do we communicate this to society and to current and future generations of architects, engineers, planners, and construction workers? And how do we communicate this to all the other actors who actively shape our building culture?

Lectures and discussions will shed light on problems, opportunities and possibilities on the way to a sustainable building culture from different perspectives.

The event is free of charge, a reservation is mandatory.

When: 17.11.2023, 13:30 – 18:15 h
Where: Landesmuseum Zurich, Auditorium Willy G. S. Hirzel
