Paul de Ruiter, Directeur, Architectenbureau Paul de Ruiter bv (Master Speaker)
9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m., Tuesday, June 7
At Paul de Ruiter Architects they are convinced that sustainability issues can be resolved at the city level, not just individual buildings. By connecting buildings to each other, they’re enabled to share energy in order to achieve a more intelligent and energy-neutral living environment. By blending functions and ensuring circularity, CO2 emissions can be limited, as well as water consumption and waste streams, resulting in healthier cities. Intelligent buildings have the power to affect society on all different levels. They are not only able to generate energy in technical terms, but also in terms of the human factor.
