This workshop aims to create awareness in the students for architecture that when approaching a new site, they should include regenerative pathway of design both on urban and architectural level. This means that within the design process they are required to:

Sustain and preserve what is already on the site – maintain, repair and upgrade resources in use to maximise their lifetime
Use waste as resource – utilise waste streams and recover waste for reuse and recycyling; prioritise regenerative resources
Design for the future – adapt a systematic perspective during the design process to employ the right materials for appropriate lifetime and extended future use
Work in a team to create a joint value – internally and with organisations to create shared values.

Polish‑Swiss Innovation Day / Better Urban Life

Better Urban Life.

Warsaw and Zurich, two metropolitan regions in transformation.

The fast pace of urbanization brings about many challenges that authorities, city planners architects and investors are faced with: enhanced mobility and energy demand, social and environmental concerns as well as altered preferences of people. These challenges are real and need urgent responses. The liveability of cities has become an international benchmark, which is crucial to attract talent and develop sustainably in all aspects.

Point of departure of the conference are two remarkable projects, realized in Warsaw and Zurich. VARSO, based in the city center, will be the highest building in the EU. ENSEMBLE will combine two skyscrapers with a football stadium. There was a local referendum on the projects.

Zurich and Warsaw are the strongest economic centers in their respective countries. Future growth has to be intelligent to grasp economic opportunities as well as to avoid negative implications for society and environment. Which courses have to be set? Which existing approaches are inspiring when it comes to better urban life?

Let’s talk about the quality of life in cities.

The textile waste

The textile waste – (10-11th of October)

Recycling of textile from general waste stream – approximately 4% – is currently a problematic issue in Slovakia. The challenge has generated mainly because of appropriate infrastructure´ absence from times of economic linearity. Major portion of textile (customer goods) is relevant for up-cycling via REUSE business models, which may promote social stakeholders generating new green jobs plus added social value for individuals and communities. Industrial textile waste might serve as the virgin material for various textile remanufacturing and up-cycled R&I solutions.

The conference contributes to acceleration of earning new textile products´ value, the waste textile´ reborn, circular textile BATs, green & transport infrastructure´ solutions, and applications for building and construction. Synergy raised from the green public procurement portfolio´ flourishing will contributes to carbon footprint decrease and climate adaptation, finally.

The conference is organized in bottom-up approach on principles of private-public partnership, including more than 50 stakeholders throughout the whole textile value chain, trying to approach all parts of the society challenged by waste textile issue.
