Architecture for a Green Capital: Beyond the environmental handbook

Last week, Peter Clegg, founding partner of FCB Studios and part of the design team behind the new Bristol Arena, gave his keynote lecture - Architecture for a Green Capital: Beyond the environmental handbook.

Presenting lessons learnt from a three-decade pursuit of new environmental approaches to architecture - from self-built experiments in passive solar design at the domestic scale in the 1980s to the increasingly complex social and political issues that shape our contemporary cities - Clegg set out his definition of Architecture for a Green Capital that will help shape the agenda for the City Ideas Studio programme,

This event was part of Bristol's Big Green Week, with hexagonal planters made by Bee Bristol, one of which is now outside the front door of the Architecture Centre. Bee Bristol will be featured in the Nature element of the studio too.
