RIBA PK05 | Architecture and Innovation

We have invited three leading experts to speak about how cutting edge technologies are being driven by the built environment to meet customers' needs. The RIBA recognise that architects want to deliver great design to clients' specifications and offer solutions that embrace new technology - but how do we get there? These talks hope to keep the conversation going.
