Mike is an accomplished designer with 30 years of experience working in the workplace, residential interior design and hospitality sectors.
Mike has successfully combined a distinguished career in architectural practice, commercial development and teaching.
He is particularly interested in exploring concepts of resilience and adaptation within design and creating buildings and places that are able to flex and change in response to shifting climatic, social and technological structures.
Data and communication will pervade and reshape every aspect of our lives. We need to have the foresight to design buildings that are resilient to change and that will remain relevant in a world with rapidly shifting physical and social structures.
We will see an intensification of usage of buildings, spaces and cities that optimises their utilisation. Carbon & Energy will be critical metrics in all aspects of our lives.
In this report, we invite members from our global multidisciplinary collective to share their insights on a key design consideration for successful high-density living in their cities, and the value it can bring.
