Green Architecture Day 2017.

Green Architecture Day will be held on Saturday 25th March; this is an annual event run by Brighton Permaculture in partnership with Low Carbon Trust. Since it’s launch in 2002 it has attracted over 2,000 participants with a wide range of stimulating talks on how we can live and work in greener buildings, featuring talks from speakers as varied as Ben Law, Christopher Day, Pooran Desai and Satish Kumar.

This year speakers include our own Duncan Baker Brown. Duncan will be speaking about some of the themes explored in his new book ‘The Re-Use Atlas: a designer’s guide towards a circular economy’. As well as lecturing here at Brighton, Duncan is the architect behind a number of experimental off-grid sustainable ‘house’ projects, such as Channel 4’s ’The House that Kevin Built’. This was the first house in the UK with an A+ energy certificate, as well as the first one made from 90% organic material. It was followed by ‘The Brighton Waste House’, Europe’s first permanent building made entirely from waste and designed and constructed in collaboration with over 360 students.

Green Architecture Day is open to anyone aged 16 or over interested in sustainability and buildings…..students, home renovators, self builders, landlords, tenants, developers, builders, architects, engineers, planners and academics.
