The future of building in a world threatened by catastrophic climate change is at the focus of the international symposium “Simply Build!”.

The first panel locates a move towards an approach to building for ease of use, robustly and as simply as possible. Buildings as a source of raw materials are a central issue for both Panels, “Recyclable Building” and “Simply Adapt”. Here, the life cycle of buildings is examined on the basis of the structural components and the raw materials used, as well as with regard to the spatial structure and the quality of the spaces themselves. The conclusion of the high-calibre programme is provided by the keynote speech by HARQUITECTES from Barcelona, whose projects engage with all three topics covered by the symposium.
