Hans Goverde keynote speaker at Energiekongress 2018

17 May 2018

How do we build the future? Where does the journey for mobility take us? How much digitalization does the community need? On Friday June 1st Kraaijvanger architect Hans Goverde answers these questions during Energiekongress 2018 in St. Gallen. The congress is an initiative of Energieagenture St.Gallen and focuses on the implantation of energy strategies. They invite different speakers for a keynote speech within this theme.

Hans Goverde is presenting at Forum 4 on healthy buildings. His work on the sustainable, cradle-to-cradle City Hall Venlo is a good example of a building with an emphasize on healthy work environments. The project is an important step into an ambition to design every project 100% cradle-to-cradle and energy supplying. This ambition will continue in his speech in which he will also talk about projects such as Museum Voorlinden, CIC Rotterdam and the 360 circular living tower.

Present at the congress? Hans Goverde is speaking on June 1st at Forum 4 starting 13:45 pm in Olma-Messen, St. Gallen

Dirk Jan Postel will lecture during ARCHITECT @ WORK about his search for the ultimate daylight museum. His fascination for the working of light and how light can contribute to functionality and to a special experience of building, interior and art is still leading in his designs. His special interest in light and the desire for a perfect illumination sometimes leads through specific material studies to tailor-made solutions such as 'light roofs' that are created in close cooperation with clients, consultants and manufacturers. Personal vision and a practical research method take various designs along the way to the ultimate daylight museum.
