To discuss the re-thinking of construction – and to inspire steps forward by the discussion – the Holcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction invited 270 specialists from 39 countries to Mexico City for the 3rd International Holcim Forum. For three days the architects, engineers, urban planners, natural and social scientists, and representatives of business, politics, and society collaborated in workshops, exchanged their views in panel discussions, attended technical presentations, and sought ways, both established and new, to translate forward-looking theoretical approaches into practice. The Holcim Forum also promoted intensive and personal exchange among the specialists – squarely in the sense of sustainability, because a breakthrough for sustainable construction can be achieved only through close and interdisciplinary cooperation as well as holistic thinking.
