Keynote speech: Sustainable Urban Regeneration, the Role of Brownfields in Meeting New Challenges

Cities today are under many stresses. Social change, housing pricing, increased needs for mobility and a changing climate are leading factors in challenges of urban sustainability and public health. Political leadership and public policies do not always recognize or keep pace with the rate of change we are experiencing today. This presentation will discuss these factors and several case studies that are successfully meeting the challenges in North America, the UK and the Czech Republic.

15:45–16:25Innovation and technology

How to optimize an office space for people and planet?

Buildings, along their lifecycle, have huge impact on environment and people health, comfort and wellbeing. In recent years’ office buildings have been among the first to address this challenge adopting widely green certification schemes. Moreover, number of case studies provide tangible proofs on how better indoor environment quality at work improves our productivity and, by consequence, business results. Saint-Gobain ambition is to help to create great living places and improve daily life by designing, manufacturing and distributing materials and solutions enhancing people’s health and wellbeing while preserving the planet. In newly build  headquarters in La Defense, Paris and in US headquarters – redeveloped brownfield in Malvern, Pennsylvania, this ambition meets reality. What can we learn from these examples?

speaker: Slawomir Szpunar – International Marketing Director, Saint - Gobain

16:25–17:15Brown Goes Green

Reconstructive Surgery of Urban Environment

Our built environment is ever changing. Cities expand and constrict. Programmatic and technological changes in society produce often sudden and dramatic tectonic shifts within our cities. Brownfield sites are visible symptoms of those underlying dynamisms we experience as urban voids, scars and barriers. How can our new interventions help to re-interpret the existing urban fabric, to bring fresh identity and re-invent the way we use spaces?

speaker: Bernard Storch – Architect, PLP/Architecture
