Integrated Building Design banner

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. How can building design adapt to these transformations? How can buildings improve the world we live in?

The UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering is pleased to announce a series of free webinars on integrated building design in the context of 21st century challenges. Please join us!

We will 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). Our speakers are drawn from industry and academia, thus offering multiple perspectives, ranging from fundamental theoretical principles to practical, real-world considerations.

All webinars will take place between 1 pm to 2 pm (UTC+1) via Zoom. Each webinar will feature presentations by industry and academic experts, followed by an interactive Q&A session. You can register for free using the links for each webinar below. Following registration, you will receive joining instructions and reminders about the event. Recordings of the webinars will be available online after the event.
