Power of Beauty in Sustainable Design
The 6th annual 1.5 °C Symposium on Climate Change challenges our industry to explore the power of beauty in sustainable design to bridge the practicality of building construction with our desire to live in harmony with the natural world. There has been a paradigm shift that beauty is only a consideration of formal aesthetics; true beauty in architecture must inherently be grounded in an integration of physical form with community connection, livability, equity, resilience, and adaptability.
Throughout the course of the event, our speakers will:
Highlight how our brain perceives and compares aesthetics in a built environment
Showcase building materials that are harmonious to nature
Share stories through re-use and reconfiguration
Challenge our idea of appealing design through innovation
Synchronize human experience and sense of community with equity and justice
This Symposium will inspire a renewed passion for innovative design through environmentally sound and thoughtful practices. Our goal is to influence participants’ respective thinking of aesthetics in architecture and equip them with tools to transform our built environment of the future.
