Valerie Mulvin at Z-axis Conference - Fri 11th Nov 2022

Valerie Mulvin will be speaking at the Z-Axis conference hosted virtually by the Charles Correa Foundation on 11th Nov 2022.

The conference addresses the urgency of climate responsive architecture using a format that has presentations and discussions with practising architects. Four sessions explore the concept of ‘Form Follows Climate’, with speakers discussing ideas and projects centred around the following themes: System Modulations, Material Explorations and Form Responses to climate.

Charles Correa coined the phrase ‘Form Follows Climate’ in the 1970s during the energy crisis and explained his own work through this lens. We see “Form Follows Climate” also as a provocation today – a call to architects and designers to find solutions to sustainable, energy-passive, and energy-active buildings.

4 Sessions on the 4 Fridays in November – 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th. Starting at 6:00 PM Indian Time, 12:30 PM Greenwich Mean Time.

Session 2 - System Modulations: This session brings together a collection of buildings from 4 different practices, with systems that are not standard models of practice but instead adapted to create a unique microclimate, through technical innovations and ecologically sound climate control. ‘System Modulations’ presents transformative approaches to energy-passive and energy-active buildings.

The session has presentations by Richard Hassell (WOHA), Valerie Mulvin (McCullough Mulvin Architects), Lina Ghotmeh (Lina Ghotmeh Architecture) , Louisa Hutton and Matthias Sauerbruch (Sauerbruch Hutton); and Mark Mulligan (Wentworth Institute of Technology) the discussant.
