Climate change, resource efficiency, health and wellbeing, social equity, smart buildings. Our world is changing rapidly; we are constantly facing unprecedented challenges and new opportunities to overcome them. In this seminar series we present the state of the art in the field through a wide range of case studies of detailed integrated architectural, environmental and structural design (exemplar buildings).

In the first seminar of the series, speakers from Hawkins\Brown and Buro Happold will discuss working on the 22 Gordon Street building. The building was redeveloped from the old Wates House, creating a new home for The Bartlett Faculty and The Bartlett School of Architecture.

The seminar will discuss:

  • the need for the project
  • how the brief was finalised
  • the collaborative design development
  • the design solution
  • the Post Occupancy Analysis findings

The event will feature a presentation followed by an interactive Q&A session.
