Conference Energy Architecture
Cycle Oriented Construction (RWTH Aachen University) and Innovationsregion Rheinisches Revier GmbH invite you to join the discussion on ecological indicators in architecture, their relevance and application as well as projects integrating resource-efficient approaches. We look forward to exchanging visions regarding the relation between natural and built environment, especially with a regional focus. An exhibition will show solutions and products which support the circular economy principles. Companies from the construction and building materials sector provide information and experiences of resource efficiency.
Within her stay at UCLA with the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, Prof. Hildebrand was invited to a lecture at the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Design. Under the title 'European Approach to Sustainability in the Built Environment', developments are discussed in the context of Nearly Zero Energy, Reuse and Recycling Directives. The lecture will take place on April 18th at the Advanced Building Construction event.

The programme will focus on utilizing algorithmic and computational design methods, unveiling novel potentials in design at an array of different scales from the material, architectural to the urban. The ten-day programme will bring together a network of distinguished international faculty and guests to offer design-research units, specialist software tutorials and a guestlecture series; the programme will be primarily based in Amman, and will include an exclusive visit to the UNESCO protected world-heritage site of the Wadi Rum desert.
