Koen Olthuis will be a keynote speaker at ABC Australia at the 6th of October.

Our oceans and coastlines are of increasing interest to architects and engineers. There’s a new emphasis on land reclamation and building floating structures for everything from accommodation to marine farming to energy generation. The Russians have even launched a floating nuclear reactor.

Re-defining the use of the ocean is part of the emerging “blue economy” – one that can be both economically beneficial and environmentally responsible. How well can these often contradictory goals be reconciled?
