How can sustainable building materials and low-tech construction methods help to meet the demand for (living) space?


This question will be addressed by natureplus with numerous experts at this year's conference "RE.THINK BUILDING - Materials and low-tech for climate- and cycle-friendly construction" at the Quadriga Forum in Berlin on September 9 from 9 am – 10 pm (CEST).

The construction industry is facing major challenges worldwide. The German government would like to see 400,000 new homes built every year - in line with its climate and resource protection targets. But this expansion target is currently receding into the distance: rising material costs and mortgage interest rates, a shortage of skilled workers and supply chain difficulties are putting pressure on the industry. It has therefore never been more important to drive forward the transformation of the construction sector and at the same time tap the potential this offers for low-cost, prefabricated and serial construction and refurbishment. Whether building in the existing fabric, building in the cycle or "simple building" - building can and must be rethought and put into practice. 

In the Quadriga Forum Berlin we are looking forward to an exciting agenda with a variety of formats and inspiring speakers for example by World Green Building Council, Concular, Archtects for Future, raumprobe and many more.

 

The official cooperation partner for this professional event is Architects for Future.

 

This event is being supported by:
