The pressures of proposing new models that not only fulfil an aesthetic brief, but also are environmentally friendly, keep up with technology, economy, and other restraints falls mainly on the architects. Buildings can strongly influence our welfare and general happiness, be it where we live, work, or play. Join us to hear from Angela Brady about the social life of buildings and how architects can design to encourage interaction in communities in the changing contemporary urban context.
