Designing in the Age of Emergency Talk

Designing in the Age of Emergency Talk

The Careers department were delighted to welcome Duncan Baker-Brown, practising architect, academic and environmental activist, to talk to our aspiring future architects on Thursday last week. Duncan’s talk Designing in the Age of Emergency focussed on sustainable architecture and how designers of the future should be looking more forensically at how they build and create projects with the planet in mind. He posed two very thought provoking questions to our pupils: What are the real challenges to adopting an authentic sustainable existence with our host plants? and: Why aren’t more people with power concerned with their own ‘business as usual’ policies?, which are powerful questions for them to consider.

To find out more about Duncan’s answers and thoughts on sustainable architecture, please feel free to head over to the recording of the session, Designing in the Age of Emergency .
