2020 Opening Night Debate

Climate Emergency: Three winning ways to make a project sustainable

2019 RIBA Stirling Prize Winner: Goldsmith Street
2019 RIBA Stirling Prize Shortlisted: Nevill Holt Opera House and Cork House

Opening Night Debate took place on Tuesday 11 February 2020 from 6:30pm – 7:30pm at Business Design Centre, The Main Stage at Surface Design Show






Each speaker was given 7 minutes to outline their Stirling Shortlisted Project and – most importantly – to detail the three moves that made the most difference to its sustainability.  The ensuing discussion included questions from the chair and the audience and focus on how those moves can be applied more widely to their own and other projects.
