How will the role of architecture develop in the next 40 years?
“Architecture and urbanism provide the framework that supports social interaction. As it becomes possible to live, learn, travel and communicate more and more in physical isolation from others, the role of architecture will be even more to create places to bring people together.”
Architect director Keith Papa is one of the speakers at a regional conference organised by S-Lab, in association with the University of Cambridge and other partners and sponsors, which aims to highlight and share good practice in laboratory design, operation and use.
