The Lecture: Professor Max Fordham writes:
The System for Sustainable Engineering Design extends to the whole of Planet Earth. Boundaries for Planet Earth include humankind as it has evolved.The system is a thermodynamic one in terms of our need to design in a sustainable way for its future. This lecture aims to provide food for thought regarding the vision required for future sustainable engineering design for the built environment.
About the Speaker:
Max Fordham pioneered environmental design and engineering for buildings.
Fifty years ago he started with an idea about how engineers could bring scientific knowledge into the art of building design. He developed his skills in what were then considered new ways of designing services engineering to test his idea. Invention, innovation and success followed.
He is Visiting Professor in Building & Design at the University of Bath, Fellow of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and Royal Academy of Engineering, and Honorary Fellow of the RIBA.
