From mineral- to bio-based architecture 
Cities can become large scale carbon sinks 
Our society will face unprecedented environmental challenges in the next decades. What is our role as architects and designers in all of this? How can we design our future houses, cities and infrastructure in a way that they are able to store more CO2 than the amount they produce? 
Like oceans and forests, our built environment can become a large carbon sink by transitioning from using mineral-based construction materials, such as concrete and steel, to wood and other bio-based materials. 
After an introduction to the topic, we will present some of our most recent projects and show ways how this transition in architecture can be achieved.

Gabriela Carrillo Podcast:
Mexican-born, Mexico-based Gabriela Carrillo is an Architect and partner at partner of the practice Taller Rocha + Carillo She graduated from Faculty of National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).Gabriela has presented lectures and has led workshops at universities in Mexico, the United States, and South America. Her work has been published nationally and internationally.
Gabriela discusses her designs and how they involve sensitivity to context and environment, combining an adequate selection of materials from the regions where the creations are established, She delves into her reasons for this and the impact it has. 
On her project Courts of Pátzcuaro in Michoacán, she took great care in trying to create a space that incorporated materials and light design to create messages and atmosphere that impact the way people communicate within these spaces. Gabriela will talk us through that process. 
The Courts of Pátzcuaro in Michoacán saw Gabriela win the 2017 International Women in Architecture Award, the highest international recognition for women in architecture. We ask Gabriela about the concept behind the design and the build process. 
Gabriela will also delve into other projects that have shaped her professional career and practice and what she loved about them. We discuss some of the materialisations, themes and processes that she is currently exploring in her work as well as the influence of growing up in Mexico has had on her work. Gabriela is also a teacher so we discuss the academic practice and her professional practice overlap and how they inform each other.
