FUTURARC FORUM 2008, Gran Melia Jakarta Indonesia, 19 February 2008

Green Building
“The facts are well-known, largely undisputed, and devastating: we are systematically destroying our home, the planet we live on. Buildings are a major cause of green-house gas emissions, wastage and pollution, yet today we know that holistic sustainable design can minimize a building’s impact on the environment.”
Dr Matthias Krups, Chairman of the BCI Group, Publisher of FuturArc

FuturArc Forum 2008 will enable 4,000 architects, developers, engineers and students of these professions to learn more about green building and sustainable design first-hand from leading architects, engineers and academics. The nine conferences, each designed as an exceptional day of learning and information exchange, will be held in Jakarta, Singapore, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Sydney, Hong Kong and Shanghai between February and April 2008. Besides speeches by pioneers in green building, each conference will feature a presentation of awards for the FuturArc Prize 2008 competition and the release of a nine-country survey on green building.
