aj launches the green rethink, a conference to radically redefine sustainability

The Brussels-based architectesassoc. partner Sabine Leribaux runs through upcoming Belgium regulations governing ‘new build and heavy refurb’ and asks how they will impact on housing …  and office schemes in the future. With reference to ventilation, sun shielding and insulation details from two of the practice’s home-grown schemes - Elia and Aeropolis II - Leribaux explains how the government (which partially funded both) is hoping these ‘low tech’ schemes will nudge developers in the right direction.
