In conversation with moderator Andres LepikSteffen Lehmann will discuss how “Green is the New Black” in terms of emerging urban design principles and strategies for energy-efficient cities beyond the individual building.

The theme of this presentation is to explore and assess emerging urban design principles and practical strategies for more energy-efficient cities, beyond the scale and scope of the individual building.
