RESPONSIVE CITIES - Disrupting through Circular Design

RESPONSIVE CITIES - Disrupting through Circular Design

International Symposium in Barcelona, 15 and 16 November 2019

With buildings being responsible for 40% of energy consumption, 36% of CO2 emissions, and the building industry being one of the heaviest waste generators globally, it is indispensable for architecture to respond, pushing for alternative design and construction models, moving away from the current prevailing models-both intensely resources-consuming and contaminating.

The notions of materialising, managing, and constructing are changing: the Responsive Cities symposium’s objective is to investigate how innovative and advanced technologies in the field of design (i.e. biotechnology, big data analysis, predictive modelling, engineered materials, digital manufacturing, etc.) can help to enhance and strengthen the implementation of circular processes.

The international symposium focuses on “Disrupting through Circular Design” within the framework of the Creative Food Cycles (CFC) project, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and developed by the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, the Institute of Urban Design and Planning of Leibniz University of Hannover and the Department of Architecture and Design of the University of Genoa.

Venue: IAAC Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia
