Monday 20 April, 6.00pm - 8.00pm
Location: 71 Newman Street, London W1T 3EQ
The population of London is
set to increase by nearly 40% by 2030 and
will place great stress on existing transport , housing and energy
supply systems. If London is to retain its attractiveness
then the quality of life of its citizens has to be maintained.
The challenge to
us as engineers is to harness innovations in digital technology
to develop solutions which are sustainable and resilient
and above all integrated. Digital technologies and open systems
of big data have the potential to allow us to plan, design
and operate our city and the buildings within it to the benefit
of all citizens. We are keen to share the ideas and
innovation that we have been implementing in London and around
the world to drive real change to people’s lives at the product, building,
city levels. Our exhibition brings together a number of talented
young designers s from across our practice in
one space who will give a series of interactive presentations followed
by opportunities to debate with the presenters and vote for the
innovation which will have the biggest impact on our city.

Last month BuroHappold put their interactive event to the test inhouse. Now is your chance to join the conversation at Green Sky Thinking Week. BuroHappold will present 10 'stations', each presenting new technological and design innovations for you to test out and challenge.
'The Living City: The Role of Technology in Planning, Design
and Constructing More Sustainable Cities'
Andrew Comer, Partner and Director at BuroHappold Enginering writes his views in 'The British Papers: Current Thinking on Sustainable City Design' newly published by RIBA Bookshops.
The British Papers is a collection of invited essays and opinions from architectural and urban design leaders, as a snapshot of current thinking and approaches to sustainable city-making.
This series of essays brings together the thoughts of leading figures in the industry – including Richard Rogers, Sir Terry Farrell, and Judit Kimpian – to share their particular viewpoints about latest design thinking. This wide ranging collection of essays look at how our history, culture and identity anchor us in place and time.
