Real Sustainability, projects by SeARCH
Bjarne Mastenbroek presented an overview of his work and positioned it in a broad discussion on sustainability. Bjarne emphasized that his architecture put necessity over opportunity, and that sustainability is a complex thing to achieve. He explained how his work on the Netherlands embassy in Addis Ababa –and his collaboration with the team in Addis- had taught him how simple solutions can be more sustainable than high tech approaches. His perspective is that high tech and low tech approaches need to be combined in new, smart ways. The audience was excited by the Villa Vals and the Amsterdam Synagogue and applauded his work.
