The documentary "Do More with Less" presents an approach to sustainable architecture based on the use of local materials and local knowledge.
From this context, the panellists share their experiences to critically engage with the documentary and ask questions about local and low-tech architecture – is it more sustainable than its global and industrialised counterparts? Will architecture save the environment or ruin it? The panel discussion is moderated by Carlos Lamuela Orta, an urbanist at Finnish Consulting Group.
The panellists are:
Brenda Vértiz, designer, Aalto University (Mexico)
Humphrey Kalanje, architect, Aalto University (Tanzania)
Inari Virkala, architect, Komitu Architects, (Finland)
Harold Gordillo, tropical forest ecology expert Finnfund (Peru)
Michiru Nagatsu, Associate Professor, Economics and Philosophy Lab, Helsinki Institute of Sustainability Science HELSUS (Japan)
The discussion is held in English.
