Cutting-edge talks on green architecture brought to you by Brighton Permaculture Trust and Low Carbon Trust.

Green Architecture Day is an annual event Brighton Permaculture has run in partnership with Low Carbon Trust since 2002. Since then, the event has attracted over 2,000 participants to hear inspiring talks about how we can live and work in greener buildings. It has featured talks from speakers as varied as Ben Law, Christopher Day, Pooran Desai and Satish Kumar.

The 2018 event will take place on Saturday 10th March at Sallis Benney Theatre, University of Brighton, Grand Parade Building, Brighton, BN2 0J.

The theme this year is Sustainability at Scale: Size Matters.We will be asking our leading experts if there is any use in our current climate of being a tiny beacon of sustainability or should we be focusing on larger developments.

How this can be possible and where the architectural and design community is heading? How does this translate to a city like Brighton and Hove and what is being done here at home?

Speakers include:

Athena Steen – Canelo Project. Hailing from Arizona, Athena is world renowned and highly recommended for her work on low-impact dwellings. A talk not to be missed.

Jonny Anstead – TOWN. Jonny has been involved in large, high profile developments and will explore with us how large scale projects measure up to smaller community-led endeavours.

This event is open to anyone aged 16 or over and will be of interest to anyone interested in sustainability and buildings. The event has benefited students, home renovators, self builders, landlords, tenants, developers, builders, architects, engineers, planners and academics.

There will also be stalls from Brighton Permaculture Trust and the Permaculture magazine bookshop will be there, so drop us a line with anything you wish to be brought along to view. Email: [email protected]
