Architecture and Urbanism Conference

Architecture meets Urbanism

Resilient and Responsible Architecture and Urbanism Conference the Netherlands. It’s all about water management in the cities of the future.

Resilient Cities face a growing range of adversities and challenges in the 21st century. From the effects of climate change to growing migrant populations to inadequate infrastructure to pandemics to cyber-attacks. Resilience is what helps Resilient Cities adapt and transform in the face of these challenges, helping them to prepare for both the expected and the unexpected.


The Resilient and Responsible Architecture and Urbanism Conference Will Be Held In 10 April To 12 April 2018. The aim of this Conference is to exchange knowledge and experience in ramping up the future-proofing of new and existing dwellings and communities. Take The Chance To Publish Your Research On The high-quality publication Organizations Such as Resourceedings” hosted by “SSRN by ELSEVIER”.


Our attitudes, business models, products, services and actions related to the design, build, maintenance and transformation of our Built Environments have to change fundamentally. New build, renovation, and restoration projects increasingly focus on energy efficiency, renewable energy generation, sustainable building, water management and resource efficiency. This is not so strange when you consider the implications of a growing global population and rise in living standards. More and more Resources will be necessary to meet global demand.


The built environment has a major impact on how we experience the quality of our daily life. With a world population that is predicted to grow considerably, the demand for Energy and resources is likely to increase and not diminish. Since the construction sector is currently responsible for 40% of energy consumption, 40% resource usage and 40% of waste globally, it is one of the most important sectors in which a real impact can be made to improve our ecological footprint. This means Architecture and Urbanism are facing a major challenge. But then still, finding answers in designing and realizing green objects and Sustainable Urban only will not be enough. Addressing these issues successfully can never be done without considering how man experiences the quality of the built environment. More than ever architecture and urbanism have the responsibility to include issues important to ordinary people, e.g. the affordability of housing, the accessibility of the Urban Environment for elderly, healthy and comfortable places to live, safe working conditions, new jobs and maintaining the quality of life in regional areas with a shrinking population.

This demands an interdisciplinary approach for architects as well as urban designers and an integrated supply chain to execute the developed plans.

The aim of this Conference is to exchange knowledge and experience in ramping up the future-proofing of new and existing dwellings and communities.
