Event description

Description

The culmination of years of specialist research, “HABITAT: Vernacular Architecture for a Changing Planet” is a once-in-a-generation large format publication. It gathers together an international team of more than one hundred leading experts across a diverse range of disciplines to examine what the traditions of vernacular architecture and its regional craftspeople around the world can teach us about creating a more sustainable future.

For the first time in the United Kingdom HABITAT contributors will have an opportunity to share their ideas in the context of the Paris Agreement.

This session will be the second from the HABITAT Events series taking place in New York, London, Brussels, Milan, COP23 Bonn, Paris, Abu Dhabi and Novosibirsk, aimed to explore global socio-economic and cultural potentials of technology development and transfer.
