Architectural Symbiosis lecture

Serban Cornea delivers a lecture on architectural symbiosis for a Chinese delegation from the National Development and Reform Commission NDRC.

NDRC is a Chinese government body responsible for the long-term economic development and reform process in China, including China’s participation in the global climate negotiations.

NDRC plays an important role for the climate and energy related development in China.

Serban Cornea addressed the issue of achieving sustainable development and attractiveness of urban environments through integrative solutions and architectural, energetic and economical symbiosis. He presented a number of innovative sustainable projects, including MUTOPIA’s sustainable mixed-use high-rise proposals for Ordos and Bejing, as well as the ongoing FoodCity, a research and development project on merging food and energy production into cities.

The lecture triggered a lot of reaction in a debate on sustainable urban development facilitated by the Danish-Chinese Business Forum, also host of the event.
