WHY DO WE NEED ECO-DESIGN? / Lecture

  • Place: Strelka Institute
  • Time: 20:00

Another interesting and worthwhile Public Lecture with the Strelka Institute, this time on Eco-Interior Design. This is a relatively new topic for Russia, which has been given a stimulus by the recent certification of the Siemens HQ - certified to LEED Commercial Interior. 

The speakers included project managers to the Siemens Project - Turner Townsend, who gave a fascinating account of the certification. Being a pioneer is never easy, so the biggest challenge mentioned was lack of availability of sustainable materials locally - good news for those entering that market!

Moderated by Guy Eames from RuGBC, the other speakers were from Tikran (interiors) and Greenup. The resulting "international" (Italian - US - UK - Russian) debate was very lively.

A photoreport can be found below. The Strelka series continues.
