About the event

Do you want to know more about Sustainable Architecture?

Join Arch Maria Paschini as she talks about sustainable Architecture also known as green design or green architecture, which is a concept that emphasizes designing and constructing buildings with environmental responsibility and resource efficiency throughout their entire life cycle.

These are the key points that she will take you through:

1. Environmental Responsibility:

Green architecture aims to limit the negative impact of building construction and operation on the environment. It incorporates practices that safeguard air, water, and other resources.

2. Resource Efficiency:

Sustainable buildings use eco-friendly construction materials and planning practices. These materials are often recycled, recyclable, or environmentally friendly.

3. Energy Conservation:

Green buildings focus on reducing energy consumption. They may utilize renewable energy sources during construction and throughout their lifespan.

4. Building Materials:

The choice of materials matters. Sustainable architecture promotes the use of safe, durable, and low-impact materials.

Arch. Maria Paschini is a Professional Architect, Arbitrator, and Sustainability consultant in Johannesburg. She lectures on sustainability and energy efficiency for the built environment. In 1996, Maria founded MCP Architect & Arbitrator and has also worked in several different-sized practices. Maria has co-presented the Professional Practice Workshops for GIfA and mentors young women architects/architectural students through the W.H.Y Project.
