RESILIENT DESIGN: CLIMATE CHANGE, COVID AND VENTILATION (one day workshop)

7th April 2022 – ONE DAY WORKSHOP
Friends House, 173-177 Euston Rd, London NW1 2BJ

Heriot Watt University sponsors a ‘Resilient Design’ event in London to help with step changing design ideas.

This one-day workshop will help Architects, Engineers, Developers, Planners and Researchers catch up with the latest research, developments and thinking on the three great challenges of our times:

  • How do we protect occupants indoors from ever more extreme climate trends and weather events?
  • Can we learn to create pandemic-proof buildings?
  • How might we adapt our designs to incorporate the multiple benefits of natural and mixed-mode ventilation?

Over the day, nine leading experts will tackle related issues to inform and educate us on how to design for ‘resilience’ – keeping people affordably safer, healthier and more comfortable in buildings. Plenty of time will be allowed for questions from the audience, and the final session will engage the audience in exploring their own attitudes on the subject, and to map the differences in understandings and approaches to the challenge of creating designing safer, healthier and more comfortable buildings in our increasingly unpredictable world.
