The VII International Forum-Exhibition 100+ TechnoBuild (previously 100+ Forum Russia) was held in Yekaterinburg from 20 to 22 October. Within three days, 87 sections were held at Yekaterinburg-EXPO (most of the events were held online), 336 speakers from 33 countries of the world took the floor.
The name change is not accidental. If the forum began as a platform for discussing the problems of high-rise and unique construction, then over seven years the agenda has expanded significantly: today it covers the entire range of urban planning and architectural topics, from innovative materials and technologies to complex renovation of industrial zones, landscaping, transport planning, urban ecology and even modern temple building.
The key topic of discussion is sustainable building. This means the simplicity and transparency of processes throughout the entire construction cycle, the use of "smart" technologies, the creation of a comfortable and safe environment, social and environmental responsibility. Celebrity speakers (Ma Yansun, James Low, Martin Gran, Realrich Siarif and others) shared their experience in designing buildings that produce more energy than they consume, talked about how 300 cities around the world turn into a continuous park line on weekends, and about other unusual projects.
100+ TechnoBuild is a perfect platform for exchanging experience of a building industry in different countries and regions during the pandemic.
