WISE Building


Product Innovation in Architecture (PIA) brings together architects, product designers and manufacturers looking to share experiences in the development of new products for the built environment.

At this lecture, architects Pat Borer and David Lea will discuss how the green agenda drives innovation in the construction and development of the Wales Institute for Sustainable Education.

Inaugurated in 2010, the WISE Building, at the Centre for Alternative Technology, Machynlleth, is a large environmental education centre designed as a case study of sustainable architecture. The building contains a lecture theatre and accommodation and demonstrates practical solutions for sustainability such as passive solar building design and heat recovery ventilation as well as low-impact building materials such as wood, hemp, lime and rammed earth.
