This event is the first in the RIBA + VitrA series, a programme of talks exploring new forms of practice within architecture. This event brings together architects that are building structures rooted in place, shaped by their context and values of integrity.
The discussion will explore how architecture can reflect social values and has the potential to enhance people’s quality of life. It will address the question: How important is it to create spaces that are diverse, inclusive, supportive, and enriching to those that use these places?
The talk will focus on accessibility, the consideration of materials, as well as collaborative methods to create public spaces. You’ll hear from architects with shared approaches to creating well-crafted buildings that last and are meaningful for those that occupy them.
Each of the speakers will present different ways of working that are inclusive and resourceful. They aim/their practice aims to have a positive impact from both a social and environmental perspective within the built environment.
