Keith Williams has been invited to chair the 2 day Leaf International Conference 2014 in Düsseldorf, Germany 9-10 October. The 14th conference brings together leading international architectural practices, contractors, developers, engineers and supplier partners to discuss the latest issues concerning architectural practice and construction industry developments.
LEAF Forum consistently attracts some of the industry’s most original and influential thinkers, creating a programme that debates and challenges the issues facing the architectural community and our built environment at large. The forum promises to bring together senior decision makers from leading international architectural practices, contractors, developers, engineers, designers and suppliers to discuss future build projects as well as sharing ideas and best practice within the industry. LEAF International has cemented itself as the leading design and build event. International architects, contractors, developers, engineers and designers meet together and discuss their future projects, challenges they face, key design features and tech innovations changing the way they work.
The conference will feature many speakers from the world of architecture, engineering, policy, design, construction and manufacture, covering a wide range of topics and subjects. Speakers include representatives from London’s Houses of Parliament, and leading firm’s including Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Malcolm Reading Associates, NBBJ, Stanton Williams, and the European Union procurement research team. The event is sponsored by leading technology group ABB.
The event culminates in the LEAF Awards dinner and ceremony in the city on Friday 10 October, where Keith Williams will present the international award for the year’s best public building.
