Lectures & Presentations
Following the official opening session, the conference kicked off with presentations held by:
Erick van Egeraat – Founder Erick van Egeraat, The Netherlands “Creating sustainable value”
In the present environmental debate, the perspective should be redirected from a debate about energy to a debate about values. How to create sustainable value? In that sense, resilience and sustainability are not about technologies, but about aesthetics. If that is the case, the following questions become crucial: Who designs our world? What defines resilience and sustainability? How do we add value to the world?
In this presentation, Erick van Egeraat discusses the need for a fundamental rethinking in our definition of Sustainability and our understanding of what creates value. Through an array of wide-ranging projects across Europe, the Architect shows how he aspires to create sustainable value through his work.

Zugló City Centre embeds future-proof solutions within its design to reduce energy consumption and emissions while enhancing the quality of life for the local community. Incorporating insulating green roofs as well as the collection, storage and reuse of 90,000 cubic meters of rainwater per year, and the orientation and composition of its buildings contribute to naturally regulate temperatures within the centre; decreasing summer peaks by up to 6°C compared to average temperatures in downtown Budapest.
