What is Green Architecture Day?
Green Architecture Day is an annual event full of inspiring talks about how we can build, work and live in greener, healthier buildings and communities, and this year is all about ACTION.
At Green Architecture Day 2020 you will hear from the industry experts using holistic, renewable and circular solutions to create climate, nature and people focused designs to improve where and how we live.
