Building Futures new future!
27 January 2017
Building Futures reconvened last night for the first time since becoming independent of the RIBA last year. Around 50 professionals and thinkers from across the built environment, including architects, engineers, strategic advisors, research, academic and environmental practitioners, gathered to talk about the long-term urban future of the UK. All discussions of politics, economics, and any other foreseeable social trauma that may occur within the next ten to fifteen years was firmly banned, with the world in 2030 set as the minimum horizon.
A team from Fluid and Soundings took a break from the day-to-day project and design discussions, to facilitate some (literally) sky-high thinking. We will be working with Building Futures over the next few weeks to bring these conversations together and develop new research directions for the group.
