A series of monthly events for a new quality of togetherness and future perspectives about the sustainable transformation of our cities.
It has been known for a long time that architecture, the building industry and urban planning have a considerable share in our current climate misery. Yet those responsible have often declared themselves not responsible and shifted the demands for less energy consumption and emissions or more greening and climate-friendly building materials back and forth: sometimes it was not financially feasible, sometimes it was not practically feasible, sometimes it was simply not desired. In this way, we have all lost valuable time, so that not only the impatience of the urban society has increased, but also the factual urgency. Because yes, we must finally act and correct course. We need a sustainable transformation of our built environment. Together with experts from design, the real estate industry, urban development politics and everyone interested in an ecological transformation of our built environment, we want to discuss how a real building turnaround can succeed.
At the launch event on 18 April 2023, our guests were New European Bauhaus and the Bauhaus of the Earth. What are their goals for a sustainable building sector and how do they want to achieve them?
Turnaround is conceived and initiated by the Architektursalon Berlin: Sebastian Bissinger & Laure Boer (BANK™), Jason Danziger (thinkbuild), Erhard An-He Kinzelbach (KNOWSPACE), Sven Sappelt (CLB Berlin), Martin Schmitt (Martin Schmitt Architektur).
