Tina Qiu speaks about circularity, at the Asia Infrastructure Forum in Singapore

Tina Qiu spoke at this year’s Asia Infrastructure Forum in Singapore, about how PLP Architecture and PLP Labs are driving towards creating more circular economies and circular cities.
Her talk is the latest in a series that she is giving across Southeast Asia, where she is speaking to audiences about the importance of designing with circularity in mind.
To accompany her talk, we created the film below to drive home the message that our industry needs to do much more to limit our impact on the planet.
Alongside this, Tina spoke about some of PLP’s landmark sustainable projects, including The Edge in Amsterdam, which was the most sustainable office at the time, focusing on green, smart, and healthy designs, operating nearly carbon-neutral with minimal costs. Also, our Bankside Yard Masterplan in London, which uses a 5th generation energy network to drastically lower the energy requirements through systems that, for example, reuse heat from offices to heat residential water.

In times like this, the already un-loved commute to work becomes a daunting task and we are reminded of the risk that even the slightest disturbance carries to both businesses and hardworking individuals. Architects have always been contemplating innovative solutions to reshape our urban landscapes, but maybe it is time to think about how to put these ideas into practice for a more resilient and sustainable future.
