Starting with Passive House principles, how can we achieve carbon neutrality in our cities? And beyond that, how can we conceive a town like a sustainable ecosystem where each element contributes to a regenerating permanent cycle, alternately a consumer and a producer? Precursor and expert in passive, sustainable, zero energy and carbon neutral buildings, architectural firm A2M will disclose the integration of a large variety of tools to achieve carbon neutrality, and how they use them to produce successful cases throughout Europe, North America, and Africa.

Mark Bernhardt, Bernhardt Construction, and Kenneth Chooi, project architect, will provide an overview of the Green Point Project which is striving to achieve both certifications.

As our larger cities further urbanize, the growth of new multi-unit residential buildings will continue to be a focus for governments and developers alike. These buildings present unique challenges for energy use in urban environments as site constraints can often limit the effectiveness of passive design strategies; hear from Cillian Collins and Sindhu Mahadevan from Perkins + Will on their lessons learned.
