As architects we are tackling some of society’s current and future challenges through the places and future legacy we create for people. We naturally resist change for a variety of reasons, especially when it's imposed on us, and this can cause uncertainty and unease. Learning to navigate and manage change successfully is vital to creating our sustainable future and build a healthy office culture based on trust and openness. A practice based on purpose only goes as far as it’s people are willing to carry it.
In this interactive session, we explore how we lead this change whilst enabling your team with the capabilities they need to succeed through a transformation, instilling a culture of continuous learning, and creating inclusiveness, and how this leadership is vital to foster a truly creative environment in which your people can thrive.

PR for architects is a two-part workshop about public relations in the built environment and how good communication can serve the business of architecture. These key skills are not often taught in architectural schools and so practitioners end up trying to figure things out for themselves, which can leave projects without a home in a competitive media landscape. Bad PR can also lead to problems with client relations and even develop unwanted reputations that can take years to undo.

Architecture is often accused of being reluctant to embrace change. As other industries around it continue to evolve, what new approaches can prove to be disruptive for architecture? What does the future of the built environment look like? This talk will look outside the discipline and examine trends in science and technology that can help us think differently about the current state of architecture. From futures studies to microbiology, it will outline how speculative approaches across different disciplines can reshape the way we live today.
All thematic programming is hosted by Future Cities Catapult at the Urban Innovation Centre.
