ACE WALK &TALK : CONFRONTING THE NEW EUROPEAN BAUHAUS AND THE REALITY ON THE GROUND
On Saturday 11 June, as part of the New European Bauhaus Festival, the Architects’ Council of Europe, with the support of its Belgian Member Organisations, will organise a "walk & talk", a one-hour-and-a-half guided tour of the Tour & Taxis site (Brussels), followed by a one-hour Policy Debate. The guided tour and the policy debate will aim to discuss challenges raised by the New European Bauhaus in relation to Architecture and Urban Planning, first through concrete examples during the tour, and then from a political perspective during the debate.
The event seeks to give an insight in the ongoing EC initiative related to the New European Bauhaus, activities of ECCREDI and its partners as well as major steps which are being taken to come up with practical solutions on our pathway to achieve a Zero Carbon Construction Industry
