Climate Manifesto 2010

New ways of thinking, new ideas and new concepts are required for the climate-conscious reconstruction and expansion of our cities: With the manifesto ‘Common Sense for the World’ in spring 2009, architects, engineers, urban planners and landscape architects made a call for principles in architecture and civil engineering that meet the needs of dealing responsibly with the earth’s resources.
The signatories of the climate manifesto were called upon to submit forward-looking projects and initiatives from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, civil engineering and urban planning, which were presented as part of the event.

The symposium ‘Common Sense for the World: Climate Manifesto 2010 – Built and conceived work’ took place in the Akademie der Künste at Pariser Platz in Berlin. In addition to the presentation of the selected projects, Sebastian El khouli of BGP Architects held the lecture 'Sustainable by Design: The Responsibility of Architecture' and participated in the panel discussion— with, amongst others, Claus Leggewie (political scientist) Andrea Gebhard (landscape architect), Günter Pfeifer (architect) and Matthias Sauerbruch (architect).
