Interrobang / Webb Yates Engineers are hosting an LFA event discussing how we design our buildings, products and food chain to circular economy principles. 

Brought together by our desire to build a sustainable future, our guest speakers will welcome an open conversation about long term durability, adaptability, disassembly and reusability and question how we as architects, engineers and entrepreneurs can work with and not against our environment.

Presentations of our foundation-free, fully demountable timber framed design for Ilford's new community market and hydroponic farm, and Chip[s]board's building materials made from potato waste, will be followed by a discussion on the opportunities and challenges of designing to Circular Economy Principles.

In today’s world, environmentally conscientious design is imperative and it is crucial we break the boundaries created by our disciplines and work together to face the challenges we are confronted with. 

 

Speakers: 

Maria Smith, founding director of Interrobang, co-chief curator of the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2019 and Mayor's Design Advocate sitting on the Mayor's Circular Economy Sounding Board.

Charlotte Whiting, Head of Sustainability at Mercato Metropolitano, the rising force behind London’s newest community food markets.

Robert Nicoll, CPO and co-founder of Chip[s] Board, a pioneering start-up company developing a range of innovative materials using potato waste.

Steve Webb (Chair), one of our founding Directors of Webb Yates Engineers, a multidisciplinary creative practice comprising structural, civil, mechanical, electrical, public health engineers and architects.
