Are buildings and cities doing enough? Are they rising to the challenge of an uncertain future? And are we doing what needs to be done fast enough?

Ecogradia is a new podcast looking for answers and more through stories, ideas and solutions from experts and practitioners at the front lines of sustainable architecture and urbanism.

Season one kicks off with three in-depth interviews that shed light on how sustainability is being moved forward on parallel fronts. Award-winning architects Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell, co-founding directors of Singapore-based WOHA, canvass the future of cities in the first episode.

Prashant Kapoor, an architect turned financial advocate with the International Finance Corporation, World Bank, breaks down sustainable finance in episode 2; while Wolfgang Kessling, a physicist now climate engineer with Transsolar KlimaEngineering in Germany, examines how to achieve greater comfort at a lower energy cost on the third episode.

The Holcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction

The Holcim Foundation helps drive systemic change towards a more sustainable built environment. It was founded in 2003 to define and promote the key principles of sustainability for the construction sector and is committed to accelerating the sector’s transformation so that people and the planet can thrive.

The Foundation has investigated various aspects of sustainable construction via a series of roundtables and conferences with international experts. It has also recognised excellent contributions to this field with the Holcim Awards which are considered the world’s most significant competition for sustainable design.

Committed to a holistic approach that recognises the equal importance and interdependence of four key goals, the Foundation combines the collective knowledge, ideas, and solutions of our global community of experts with our recognised platform of international competitions to democratise thought leadership for the entire sector.

Today, the Holcim Foundation is proud to accompany Ecogradia’s new podcast and its host, Nirmal Kishnani, with whom we share a common goal: contribute to a just, equitable, and sustainable future via sustainable construction and design.

Many countries in the developing South seek pathways to a sustainable future. Peru-based architecture firm Barclay & Crousse offers a prism on what this looks like, when it is anchored to the specifics of people, climate and place.
Good design often reveals what we do not know we need. But such a feat depends not only on what we tweak and improve, says Kjetil Trædal Thorsen, but how we re-imagine the process. The question is: where to start?
Bjarke Ingels is a global brand. Whatever one feels about starchitects in general, he is a force to be reckoned with. What does he think is the future of buildings and cities? What role will design play in solving the climate crisis?
