COP26 Glasgow Events by Foster + Partners Architects

The UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties or COP26 began yesterday at Glasgow’s Scottish Exhibition Centre, including the SEC Armadillo and OVO Hydro buildings. Sustainability has been the central focus of the practice from its inception, which has been brought into sharp focus by the ongoing climate emergency. Foster + Partners is participating in and organising several talks and events both in Glasgow as well as its London campus, highlighting innovative sustainable designs, processes and thought leadership.

On Wednesday, 3 November, Norman Foster will be in conversation with US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, John Kerry, and Leader of Glasgow City Council (Mayor) Susan Aitken, on the post-covid city, joined by an audience of mayors from across the world. Event details as follows:
