Art & Build selects We Are Real Estate for next conference

Forward thinking: an Art & Build impression of ‘wood offices’ it is to construct in Luxembourg.
Forward thinking: an Art & Build impression of ‘wood offices’ it is to construct in Luxembourg.

On the evening of May 22nd, Art & Build is hosting a major conference at We Are Real Estate, entitled ‘Le Champ des Possibles’ or ‘The Field of Possibilities. This is in fact the latest in a series of conferences hosted by the architectural bureau. The bureau points out that Le Champ des Possibles is a series of conferences initiated in 2009 by itself which brings together a broad range of personalities. Maverick thinkers who question their profession and all manner of context, our speakers have contributed generously to our collective intelligence.

On the agenda for this conference are a series of talks from experts, including Yves Weinand (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne), and Brussels bouwmeester Kristiaan Borret.

Art & Build describes its thinking for the series of conferences like this: ‘Future generations will inherit today’s-built environment. Shouldering this collective responsibility means rethinking the ways we build, consume and interact.

And thinking differently is about taking a step backwards and forwards at the same time, believing in something better, breaking the mould. In our quest, curiosity drives the process and questions provide us with tools.

We must examine both our environment and ourselves, share both knowledge and doubt, relate both our achievements and failures, for the transmission of knowledge as prerequisite of progress. The more we share, the more we gain.

Ecological and social challenges cannot be resolved by a single individual or a single building, but collectively, a complex project built upon multiple collaborations’.
