TU Dublin Professor Invited Expert At 6th International LafargeHolcim Forum

Posted: 1 April, 2019

Professor Lloyd Scott is an invited expert at the 6th International LafargeHolcim Forum for Sustainable Construction taking place in Cairo between the 4th and 6th April. The LafargeHolcim Forum is a tri-annual series of conferences on the topic of sustainable construction.

Prof. Scott is an expert member of the LafargeHolcim Foundation forum which integrates architectural, scientific, cultural, and policy concerns and ensures that they are aligned with the current interpretations of sustainable development. The theme of the 6th LafargeHolcim Forum is “Re-materializing Construction” with a focus on enabling a paradigm shift in the use of building materials – by reducing consumption throughout the material cycle from extraction to processing, transport, installation, maintenance, and removal. The 6th International LafargeHolcim Forum for Sustainable Construction will be hosted by the American University in Cairo from April 4 to 6, 2019. The LafargeHolcim Forum is dedicated to the topic of “Re-materializing Construction”. Keynote speeches, workshops and site visits will focus on strategies to reduce consumption throughout the material cycle from extraction to processing, transport, installation, maintenance, and removal.

The Forum pursues the question of how the building and construction industry can adapt to be leaner: with a smaller ecological footprint and not driven by the presence of infinitely available raw materials. Hence, the Forum seeks to suggest radical solutions in the use of building materials.

Keynote speakers include Christine Binswanger(Senior Partner, Herzog & de Meuron, Switzerland), Lord Norman Foster (Chairman & Founder, Foster + Partners, United Kingdom), Laila Iskandar (former Minister of Urban Renewal & Informal Settlements, Egypt), Mitchell Joachim (Co-Founder, Terreform ONE, USA), Francis Kéré (Principal, Kéré Architecture, Germany), Anne Lacaton (Principal, Lacaton & Vassal Architectes, France), and Rt Hon Simon Upton (Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, New Zealand).
