The event, which took place on Wednesday 11 October, enabled discussions and speeches from architecture experts covering issues such as climate change and understanding how to make the best use of local natural resources while respecting our environment.
The event particularly discussed the launch of a publication entitled ‘Habitat: Vernacular Architecture for a Changing Planet’ edited by architect Sandra Piesik and published by Thames & Hudson.
The book is a large format publication gathering together an international team of more than one hundred leading experts across a diverse range of disciplines to examine what the traditions of vernacular architecture and its regional craftspeople around the world can teach us about creating a more sustainable future.
This session was the second from the HABITAT Events series taking place in New York, London, Brussels, Milan, COP23 Bonn, Paris, Abu Dhabi and Novosibirsk, aimed to explore global socio-economic and cultural potentials of technology development and transfer.
The University of Westminster is dedicated to address the everyday issues of environmental and urban sustainability by understanding its impacts and measuring its results.
