HOT TOPIC: Function First, Aesthetics Second– Sheffield 2029! with Dusty Gedge

We know you’ve come straight from work so our talk will be punchy and to the point, engaging and energising you to continue the conversation over the course of the evening and beyond!

Dusty Gedge brings insights into how designing all aspects of buildings can be informed by his experience. The future of design is about performance and function rather than just about pure aesthetics. The future of design needs to focus on function first and form second, performance first and products second.

Be inspired by a biophilic approach to design that can inform the inanimate aspects of design as well as the animate. Buildings are the blocks that make up a city and they need to meet the challenges of the future. And through good design, they can meet the challenge.

If your future is in Architecture and Construction then you really need to listen to Dusty’s vision of the future.

WHO IS… Dusty Gedge – Green Infrastructure Specialist

Dusty is a global green infrastructure consultant. He is the President of the European Federation of Green Roof Associations (EFB and founder of, and is a working group member of the EU GI and Ecosystem Services working group.

Biodiversity and birds on green roofs drew him into this work 20 years ago. Nature is at the heart of his work although he quite naturally deals with all the issues that cities face and how vegetation can help adapt cities to climate change.

5:45pm: CONNECT

The conversation’s free, too. And so is the bar… network with fellow specifiers and pick the brains of technical teams from up to 25 major suppliers in the most relaxed of environments.

All in the space of a couple of hours, at a time that suits you and all on your doorstep – you normally have to travel out of town and take valuable time away from the office for an event of this quality!

8.00pm: DINNER

No black ties allowed. Just simply come as you are.

Our dinner is a relaxed affair, and makes this event like no other in the calendar.
