Perspective usa is back in nyc to deal with circular economy, the evolution of design and esg criteria
By Editorial Staff -

How can the circular economy guide architecture, in its evolutionary trajectory in the era of globalization? What responses and solutions can design provide to climate change and function hybridization? How are ESG criteria and the ecological transition influencing the way we think about and design cities today and in the future?

These will be some of the main questions around which the Panel Discussions of the 10th Perspective USA Forum will be held on Thursday, October 26, in Downtown New York (Convene @ 101 Greenwich Street – 2nd floor). This Architecture and Interior Design Forum, organized by THE PLAN  with the presence of Iris Ceramica Group as Main Partner, aims to create a think-tank of excellence in the field of architecture, design and urban planning, offering participants valuable networking opportunities and a rich program of panel discussions with established industry professionals and emerging talent. During the day, there will also be screenings of several docu-films made by THE PLAN and related to the world of design.

The day's program will include a series of panel discussions and docu-film screenings, which will run in parallel with One-to-One Business Meetings, a valuable opportunity for networking among important players in the design and construction supply chain.

The event is part of the ARCHTOBER festival program, curated by the Center for Architecture of New York and in collaboration with AIA NY.
