Materials Matter: Exploring the Sustainability Power of Material-Centric Design
What is the role of architects in climate change mitigation and enhancing urban resilience?
And can a renewed connection with materials unlock both embodied carbon reduction and more liveable urban environments?
In this session, Helen Cheng, Director of Sustainability & Decarbonisation at Turner & Townsend, will discuss the benefits of adopting an ecosystem approach to the design of the built environment.
She will draw on her 25 years’ architectural experience working on projects across Australia, Singapore, China, India and Bangladesh to examine how material-centric design supports human well-being.
