This contribution gives a synthesis of all the input gleaned from the symposium ‘Beyond Sustainability’ and the papers presented in this final document. This is based on a reading, structuring and combining of all papers of the symposium, on the summaries of the parallel sessions and on the contributions to this publication. Apart from presentations and networking, the symposium aimed to consult the participants regarding their visions on ‘sustainable building in the 21st century’. After consultation, four main topics appeared to be dominant: 1. Presentation and evaluation of contemporaty best practice in sustainable building and rethinking of concrete, new chances for contemporai’y sustainable building and architecture 2. Suggestions on innovative, pioneering (and utopian) concepts that should be realised in the (near) future 3. Barriers on the road to more sustainable building 4. The path to extreme sustainability
