Breakout session: Building for the future

The longer-term effects of Covid 19 and growing pressures of climate change, combined with evolutions in urban life patterns, are changing the way we live, work, socialise, travel, and experience our cities. To ensure that it continues to generate value and contribute to the quality and texture of urban life going forward, the cultural infrastructure sector must take this fast-evolving context into account – and all its stakeholders, from engineers to designers to placemakers, must adapt accordingly. But what does that entail in practice? In this session, experts in urban design, architecture and placemaking share how their work and practices have evolved over the last few years, and discuss what it means today to build cultural infrastructure for the future.
