Sustainability Live 2017, the inaugural architecture, design, engineering and construction industry education and CPD event, hosted by Architecture & Design proved to be very popular for the more than 200-plus people that attended the event, held last Thursday, 26 October at Doltone House in Sydney.
Configured as a Q & A format, the day-long program consisted of seven industry-specific panels filled by highly respected and experienced architects, designers, engineers, builders, product manufacturers and installers, who discussed and dissected a range of ideas, views, trends and outcomes.
The panels were themed to synch with the categories in the 2017 Sustainability Awards program that was held later that evening, providing attendees a window into a range of industry-specific issues.
The panels were: Biophilia and the greening of the public space, Sustainability through the chain, The power of passive, The healthy home, Sustainability of scale, Innovating sustainable building products, and lastly, Preserving our past, Building our future.
However, the panels were also only half the story - special mention needs to be made of the moderators, all of which added another level of professional gravitas
