SHARE X, a special edition of the SHARE forum, dedicated to innovative materials, disruptive technologies

SHARE X, “Conference for Advanced Architecture”, that will take place on the 14th of November will be hosted by the Radisson Blu Hotel. The event, traditionally organised by ABplus events alongside The Romanian order of Architects (OAR) and The University of Architecture “Ion Mincu” UAIUM Bucharest, is built on 3 sections: innovative materials, disruptive technologies and advanced building skins.

The main panel of special guests lists researchers and practitioners alike, well known for their innovation in architecture:

Marcos Cruz is a professor at the department of “Innovative Environment” at the Bartlett School of Architecture and director of Bio-ID, a cross-disciplinary research platform between architecture and biochemical engineering that he created to develop new forms of bio-integrated design in architecture.

Špela Videčnik is the founder of the Slovenian practice OFIS Architects and associate professor at the Harvard University. She is well known for her expertise in creating unrepeatable experiences in extreme environments: Glass House, in the Goraffe desert, Spain or the Winter Cabin din the Kanin Mountains.

Anna WendtDirector at BuroHappold Engineering in UK comes to Bucharest to share her experience in creating the façade for the project signed by Jean Nouvel – Louvre Abu Dhabi. In her presentation intituled “The Louvre Abu Dhabi – From Vision to Reality”, Anna will reveal the concept and the stages for building the iconic façade that had to be designed to withstand Abu Dhabi’s extreme climate, which includes aggressive airborne dust and sand, high salinity, humidity and the occasional sandstorm.

Architect Helmut Kinzler, head of the Zaha Hadid VR Group, will present his results in experimenting with real time modelling in virtual reality and interactive virtual reality experiences demonstrating immersive technology for architecture.

The conferences will be moderated by 2 young Romanian architects working and living in London: Vlad Țenu and Bogdan Zaha.
