  • More Homes, Better Homes – how should we build? What is sustainable? A holistic look at the future of housing, the panel will discuss sustainable housing from an economic, social and ecological perspective. How should we build – for adaptability or zero energy? What is a sustainable community?
  • Heritage – to list, demolish, reuse, preserve? How does our existing stock fit in to the green future? Our top-flight panel debate the future of listed, heritage and classic stock
  • Building green and tall: What is the future of high-rise towers? Are they sustainable, or wasteful sealed glass boxes? How does our design and specification of them need to change?
  • Technical briefing: What you need to know about Part L, Soft Landings and the Performance Gap: Incisive and plainspoken briefing on what every architect needs to know about new regulations and government initiatives, as well as a discussion of post-occupancy evaluation and liability.
  • Green innovation and specifying green: Discover the latest emerging technologies, materials and innovations in sustainable design – or are the old, durable materials still the best?
