Lecture Abstract:

According to the UN Environment and the International Energy Agency’, our building industry is responsible for 39% of all carbon emission. Architects, engineers, contractors and everyone else involved in our field now have a duty to work collectively to reduce our carbon impact. The environmental cost has to take priority over financial values and our materials and design technologies need to serve this higher purpose. Arthur Mamou-Mani is an architect specialised in eco-parametricism, looking at coupling a cradle to cradle approach to design with the maker’s movement. Through several of his practice’s projects, Arthur will show how parametric design can bring us closer to the natural world.
