SAVE THE DATE: 3rd International Green Roof Congress in Hamburg, Germany (13-15 May, 2013)
Green Roofs coming home
This slogan borrowed from the world of football can be aptly used to describe the 3rd International Green Roof Congress to be held in Hamburg/Germany in May 2013.
The port metropolis already belonged to the Premier League of German Green Roof Communities back in the 80s. New challenges to be faced in the areas of climate protection and adaption, as well as in urban living quality, have put Green Roofs back on the agenda.
It is the perfect choice of location to present the current status of Green Roofs / Vertical Greenery and to discuss its connection with modern architectural concepts and urban planning solutions.
The participants can expect a high-class congress programme with lectures, workshops and excursions, including the International Garden Show 2013 and the International Building Exhibition - Building the City Anew (IBA), both taking place at thesame time in Hamburg.
The list of speakers includes sustainability experts from different disciplines like Kai-Uwe Bergmann (BIG), Prof. Herbert Dreiseitl (Atelier Dreiseitl), Wong Mun Summ (WOHA), Peter Busby (Perkins + Will), Prof. Dr. Manfred Köhler (University of Applied Sciences Neubrandenburg), Martin Haas (STUDIO 2050), Roland Appl (International Green Roof Association) and Ilya Mochalov (International Federation of Landscape Architects).
A multidisciplinary platform for Green Roof applications in architecture, landscape architecture, urban waterscapes and urban planning - the 3rd International Green Roof Congress is a unique event you should not miss!
