Sustainability is a journey. Ecogradia is back with a new series of ten episodes to find out from world-leading players how to forge ahead, keep faith, beat the odds and put ideas to work, right from the drawing board.

Again this season, we traverse the globe, weaving a tapestry of stories and solutions through conversations that delve into the journey and motivations of practitioners who have become sustainability champions. We want to know how they got ‘here’.

We kick off with headliner Bjarke Ingels, the founder of BIG, one of the most well-known architecture firms today, who explores form as a pathway to performance and experience.

In episode 2, Snøhetta’s founder, Kjetil Trædal Thorsen, shares an innovative design process deployed by his team that produces an altogether different kind of architecture.

In the course of the next few months, you will learn from experts with perspective. For instance, architects Sandra Barclay and Jean Pierre Crousse talk about their work in Peru. Vo Trong Nghia discusses Vietnam.

We have also made room for topical deep dives, what we call ‘eco-know-how’ segments, conversations with specialists that answer practical questions on the challenge of sustainability.

Ecogradia’s season 4 starts on 30th January 2024.

This episode is brought to you by:

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?
