Sustainability & Design in China – Strategic China Briefing with Dylan Brady | ACBC VIC VIRTUAL EVENT

19 May 2022

Explore a uniquely sustainable approach to doing business with China, through the lens of architectural design leader Dylan Brady.

In the second instalment of our 2022 Strategic China Briefings in partnership with the Global Victoria Trade Alliance, ACBC is pleased to host valued ACBC Member, Dylan Brady, a sustainable architecture and design pioneer with a fresh perspective on doing business with China.

Dylan is the architect of SCGZero+, a project commissioned by Shanghai Construction Group that will become China’s highest rated sustainable building and its first ‘5Zero’ building – zero carbon, zero water, zero energy, zero waste and zero formaldehyde. Challenging the industry in China, he aims to redefine the global benchmark for sustainable buildings.

He will speak to the importance of cultural depth in developing new ways of thinking and working with China, which brings fresh and innovative perspectives that deepen understanding and success of projects in China.

Dylan will also unpack the importance of building and maintaining relationships – including government links, networks and collaborations that Victorian trade missions have helped him to foster – which is instrumental to sourcing opportunities and bringing projects over the line.

This virtual briefing will be followed by a Q&A session.
