SeSa Build 2016 in Istanbul focuses on the sustainable city
Date: 25th-27th February 2016
Place: Istanbul Convention Center, Turkey
Once again the focus was on earthquake-proof planning and construction, structural engineering and IT solutions, along with topics such as urban requirements and concepts, which link together social circumstances and the resilience of ecosystems. As part of the SeSa Talks, top speakers from architecture, science, politics and industry reported on innovative ideas and solutions. The general conclusion was as follows: To overcome the growing challenges of climate change, specialists such as architects, landscape architects, urban designers and engineers need to work together. Projects need to be planned in an interdisciplinary way in order to make efficient use of increasingly scarce public spaces and financial resources given the increasing densification of cities. Some of the projects appeared so plausible and easy to implement that many of the around 800 visitors to the forum were puzzled as to why there weren‘t many more of them.
