compact and adaptive - towards sustainable design

Professor Richard Horden has been invited to participate at the “Compact and Adaptive – Towards Sustainable Design” Seminar organised by The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation on Friday 14 March 2014 at 6pm.

The speakers will discuss how living space can be “compact” but rich, inspired by the classic scale and order of a Japanese house, which is combined with advanced concepts and technologies. They will also introduce the idea of “adaptivity”; how space can interact with future changes of demands and how space can be flexible to allow the user to customise the space both on a daily as well as on a periodic or even longer term basis. The discussions will also cover the social context of Japanese housing construction and the recent sustainable micro regeneration approach in Japan.
