ECOWEEK 2010: GREEN ARCHITECTURE :: COMMUNITY :: SUSTAINABILITY International Conference and Interdisciplinary Workshops for Young Architects, Designers and Planners will give young professionals and graduate students the opportunity to learn from and cooperate with expert professionals through discussing, planning, and even constructing "green" projects for communities in Jerusalem, the West Bank, the Negev Desert, and the Biennale of Bat Yam.
Participants will work side by side with known and established architects, designers, and engineers from Israel, Palestine, Greece, Italy, Europe, and the US. The participating young architects and students of Architecture are expected to join the program from Israel, Palestine, Greece, Italy, Europe and the US. They will work in small groups of no more than 10-15 people and will learn together the principles and tools to integrate sustainability principles, "green" Architecture and ecological solutions in their Architecture and design decisions. They will also have the opportunity of working with real clients for real projects some of which will be built.
ECOWEEK 2010 includes lectures and keynote lectures by international and regional speakers, thematic lectures and interdisciplinary workshops, optional site visits to ecological houses, and hands-on workshops. Participating architects and experts are Prof. Robert Axelrod (University of Michigan), Michael Sorkin (Sorkin Studio, New York), Bjarke Ingels (BIG, Denmark), Nataly Gattegno and Jason Johnson (Future Cities Lab), Thomas Rau (Holland), Thomas Doxiadis (doxiadis+, Greece) and others.
