To ensure sustainable development for increasing population with growth rate of almost 3 humans every second the energy supply must be secured. The greatest source of energy for the future is continuing to use it more efficiently. In last 20 years global energy savings were equivalent to more than 25 years of primary energy consumption in the U.S. Without further actions, the global energy deficit will account for about 15-20% by 2035.
Thus, the sustainable architecture and building should be indispensable to minimise this lack, as in Germany for example, buildings account for roughly 30% of the consumed resources. In this regard the public must be aware of that importance challenging green real estate.
This has not only positive micro effect on the residents, but also macro effect on the national economy, as well as on the climate reducing the global warming.
Latest design standards and techniques may provide excellence in design alongside the sustainable architecture. Hence, everyone involved has to be a little bit more creative and mindful, as well as more active.
The architects who start the process are in the position to initiate and promote such behaviour.
Thus, in order to contribute to such behavioural advancement and considering sustainable architecture as architecture on the edge or even beyond design, I have initiated and founded the International Conference with Exhibition S.ARCH. Here, the accent is on the architectural quality demonstrating different approaches of relations between good architecture and environment, without focusing only on technical aspects of building. So, the sustainability and great design does not exclude each other in the process of creating green building.
The first S.ARCH conference dealing mainly with the state of affairs of worldwide projects on Sustainable Architecture of prominent architects will be held on 14-15 May 2014, at the Hyatt Regency Belgrade, Serbia, where I welcome you to join us.
