This NEXTBUILT edition aims to stimulate a reflection on resource scarcity in the next generation built environment, assuming a strongly forward-looking approach. How can we live with less? Ranging from tangible (materials, water, energy) to intangible means (finance, resources, time), the Conference seeks for contributions to discuss policies, trends, strategies, methodologies, design approaches and technologies to tackle future needs by overcoming business-as-usual models. The Conference offers the opportunity to bring together bright minds, giving idea-focused talks on four key topics and sharing lessons learned, inspirations, and pathways to shape the NEXT generation BUILT environment.
