Room 409, Building 39
Lectures:
 In this talk, we reflect on the shifting relationship between humanity and nature, emphasizing the pivotal role of Sustainable Architecture in our contemporary context. Our focus centers on the convergence of architectural and engineering disciplines to achieve sustainability in both form and material. Within the realm of Sustainable Architecture we hone in on the structural design perspective as a means to reduce construction materials and minimize our carbon footprint through the seamless integration of design and technology. We explore pressing questions concerning the rapid depletion of our natural resources and our responsibility to future generations, recognizing the urgency in reevaluating our resource consumption patterns and seeking sustainable solutions for environmental preservation. Highlighting a striking statistic, we reveal that a substantial 90% of all materials produced ultimately go to a waste, landfills, or combustion, with only 10% recycled, primarily in the form of polymers. With an eye toward the future, we acknowledge the imperative for the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Industry to pioneer new methods of design, beginning with education at the university level, to empower our future decision-makers-architects, engineers, and construction managers. This talk is dedicated to the exploration of innovative strategies aimed at optimizing structural system systems and reducing construction materials, fostering a sustainable and environmentally responsible built environment.
