Title- Architectural Futures: Climate, Liveability, and Computation
Synopsis: Architects must now take a much greater level of responsibility for the performance of our buildings, not only in dealing with the climate crisis but also to elevate the behavioural performance of buildings and cities for their users. To fully deliver on our responsibilities to the communities we serve, we must draw on the full potential of the computational tools emerging.
