Session 1: Contexts

The opening session will look beyond single buildings to the new contexts they create and the existing contexts into which they fit. Speakers will focus on people as the inhabitants of cities, towns, and villages to discuss how places are and could be shaped by rapid urbanisation, climate change, heritage, and indigenous knowledge.
