We are talking a lot about international examples of ecological architecture, but we don’t know much about local experience. Who are they — the pioneers of ecological architecture in Moscow and other Russian cities? What do we mean by sustainable architecture in Russia, is it the same as in the rest of the world? Is it possible to achieve energy efficiency in our climate? Is it really that expensive?  We will invite those, who don’t only talk about the achievements of sustainable architecture, but those who create it — right in front of us. Urban planners, architects, realtors and citizens will gather at Strelka to present their experience.  They will describe their projects and discuss how ecological architecture can transform from exception to rule.

The event is held in partnership with the Green Ecological Council in Russia.

Participants:

Alexey Morohovets — realtor, founder of ALEX TECHNOLOGIES Innovation Centre, jury of the 1st Russian ecological development and sustainability GreenAwards competition

Dmitry Makarov — head of  “Active House” project by “Suburbian House” company

Erick van Egeraat – architect, founder and director of Designed by Erick van Egeraat
