Conference for architects

Sustainable Aesthetics and Functionality: Architecture and Interior Design in the Light of the Green Deal

Thursday, 23rd and Friday, 24th November 2023.

The traditional gathering of architects and interior designers in Rovinj, as part of the Design District 2023 fair, reflects the influences of the European Green Deal on architecture and brings inspirations for green perspectives in interior design.

The mission of this year’s Conference is to explore pivotal topics such as the circular economy in architecture and interior design, climate-focused urbanization, and the role of designers and architects in sustainable construction and furnishing.

We are especially pleased to introduce exceptionally intriguing speakers who bring their firsthand experiences of successfully implemented circular economy principles like modular design, recycling, reuse of materials, architectural innovations, and efficient solutions.

In two fulfilling and inspiring days, we are focused on the propositions of the European Green Deal, materials, and digitization all within the context of global design and new practices in architecture and interior design. We answer the questions: is it possible to achieve sustainability without boundaries through architecture and interior design, utilizing new values: energy independence, economic viability, and environmental preservation.
