The School of Architecture will host the Reading Climate Forum on the evening of 17 November 2016, 6 – 8 pm. The Forum is part of a series of informative and networking meetings around climate change (risks, mitigation and adaptation), promoted by the Greater Reading Environmental Network and funded by the Reading Climate Action Network. The topic to be discussed is the effect that Architecture and Urban design has on new buildings and refurbishments to achieve low environmental impact. The discussion will focus on multiscale and multidimensional approaches across the built environment, as a precondition for environmentally sound and socially meaningful design.
The Forum is structured around three steps corresponding to different modalities of discussion. In the first part complementary research perspectives on the topic will be presented. A pitch session will introduce different views from practice professionals. A round table on “Local issues and local plans” with the public will conclude the Forum. Upon registration, participants will have the opportunity to submit a question for the round table.
The event is organised by Dr. Daniela Perrotti and Professor Lorraine Farrelly (School of Architecture), in collaboration with the Greater Reading Environmental Network.
