LFA Digital 2020: Whole Life Design — a blueprint for a sustainable post-pandemic future

« All Events

Join us for a discussion about Whole Life Design, designing for air quality, and ultimately, the architect’s power to shape a more sustainable post-pandemic future as part of this year’s London Festival of Architecture.

This 45-minute virtual panel will examine the climate emergency and the power the architect holds in making critical decisions at design stage to shape a more sustainable future in a post-pandemic world through a Whole Life Design methodology and designing for clean air.

The event will be chaired by Hawkins\Brown Head of Sustainability, Louisa Bowles.https://www.hawkinsbrown.com/news-and-events/event/lfa-digital-2020-whole-life-design-a-blueprint-for-a-sustainable-post-pandemic-future
