Please join us for the second session in the series of HABITAT events which are 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.

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.

The publication has been reviewed in The Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/sep/19/habitat-vernacular-architecture-changing-planet-sandra-piesik-review
