COLLABORATION WITH NATURE:
Climate Action by Architecture
Eastern Methodology for Sustainable Design
24 Jul 2009
Organized by sa: seoul association of architects
Supported by Presidential Committee on Green Growth (Korean Government), Seoul Metropolitan Government
The built environment is globally responsible for about 40 per cent of global CO2 emissions, 40 per cent of solid waste generation and up to 40 per cent of global energy use. Compared with many other industry sectors the opportunities to reduce emissions are easier to achieve and more substantial. Small changes could potentially create massive waste and energy savings.
However, the most sustainable efforts are made by engineers in building industry. Architects have been relatively shy on this issue. Instead of relying on other profession to solve this problem, we call for architects’ response on this social issue not only by technologies but also by design.
Architect is the profession who is able to integrate many different components into a whole. If the whole is more than sum of its parts architects could achieve more substantial change than part-oriented technologies.
Eastern thinking toward nature is somehow different than Western idea. Eastern looking for symbiosis with nature while Western looking for controlling nature if not too stereotyped. The workshop will demonstrate Eastern architects’ reaction on the global agenda.
