International Green Roof Congress 2013

The 3rd International Green Roof Congress will take place in Hamburg, Germany. The event will be organized by the International Green Roof Association (IGRA) from 13 – 15 May 2013 at the Empire Riverside Hotel.

The port metropolis Hamburg already is part of the Premier League of German Green Roof Communities since the 80s. New challenges to be faced in the contexts of climate protection and urban living quality, put Green Roofs back on the agenda. Visitors can expect a high-class congress programme with lectures, workshops and excursions, including the International Garden Show and the International Building Exhibition – Building the City Anew (IBA), both taking place this year in Hamburg.

The list of speakers includes sustainability experts from different disciplines like Kai-Uwe Bergmann (BIG), Prof. Herbert Dreiseitl (Atelier Dreiseitl), Wong Mun Summ (WOHA), Peter Busby (Perkins + Will), Prof. Dr. Manfred Köhler (University of Applied Sciences Neubrandenburg), Martin Haas (STUDIO 2050), Roland Appl (International Green Roof Association) and Ilya Mochalov (International Federation of Landscape Architects).

The multidisciplinary platform for Green Roof applications in the field of architecture, landscape architecture, urban waterscapes and urban planning is under the patronage of the German Federal Minister of Transport (BMVBS), Building and Urban Affairs.
