Podcast sustain.build.repeat.

Recordings with Campusradio Karlsruhe at the 2022 Symposium by the KIT Faculty of Architecture

Many exciting speakers were guests at the 2022 sustain.build.repeat symposium, which was held at the ZKM and livestreamed under the management of PINK Event Service. The event was organized by the KIT Professorship of Sustainable Construction with the kind support of Wacker Chemie AG. In order to revisit the contents of the symposium, a podcast was recorded in cooperation with Campusradio Karlsruhe in the immediate vicinity of the venue.

Everything we need to live has already been built. That is one of the statements of the symposium on sustainable construction. The scientists agreed that we first have to take a break from building new living space. It is now about making better use of the existing building stock. After all, the construction sector contributes a good 40% to the emission of gases that are harmful to the climate, and the construction industry also occupies top positions when it comes to the consumption of valuable resources. The podcast episodes listed below show different perspectives, approaches, business models and visions of the speakers of the symposium.

After the event, Stefan Fuchs looked back on the event together with Prof. Dirk E. Hebel as initiator. Which topics dominated the day of the symposium? In which points did conflicts arise? Where were concrete approaches to solutions discernible? How can we look to the future?
