Carbon Stories Carbon Neutral High-Rise?

Lezing / Debat

On this evening LEVS, V8 architects, WSP and the municipality of Rotterdam will share their views on the sense and sensibilities of Carbon Neutral High-rise.

With reducing climate change effects taking center stage in investment reporting, regulations and tenders, the topic of embodied carbon is an area of increasing interest for everyone involved in the built environment. This puts ‘reaching for the sky’ into a new perspective in our national high-rise capital, Rotterdam. High-rise gave the city a postwar identity that is known beyond national borders. In Rotterdam, projects up to 70 meters no longer raise eyebrows. New heights are on the horizon with more and more planned high-rise projects crossing the 200-meter-plus mark.

Architect Jurriaan van Stigt, founding partner at LEVS, will share their study on carbon neutral high-rise for G4. Architect Michiel Raaphorst, founding partner at V8 architects, will take us through a selection of their (mid-)high-rise. Engineer Thomas Musson, advisor at WSP, will elaborate on hybrid high-rise projects worldwide and policymaker Mattijs van Ruijven, head urban planner at Municipality of Rotterdam, will infuse the conversation with the perspective of Rotterdam.
