ASF-UK Symposium – Challenging Practice: Designing In Uncertain Global Times February 6, 2016
Join ASF-UK for a one-day symposium to explore how built environment practitioners can respond to emerging global challenges in cities.
When: Saturday 5th March 2016
UCL campus: Pearson (North East Entrance) G22 LT,
London WC1E 6BT
With highly interactive sessions throughout the day, we will test and discuss different skills, approaches and knowledge that can ‘challenge practice’ in order to design in uncertain global times. The day will be a great opportunity to expand your knowledge of working in this sector, to network with others in this field and a chance to discover ways in which to engage with ASF-UK. The event will end with a reflection by practitioners involved in innovative forms of practice in the UK and around the world.
MORNING SESSION 9:30 – 13:00
Drawing from the experience of ASF-UK, the session will examine the value of built environment practice in addressing key global challenges facing cities today.

AFTERNOON SESSION 14:00 – 18:00
Interactive workshops will develop original insights into the future of built environment practice in uncertain global times, based on four inspiring projects from around the globe: Colombia, India, Kenya, and the UK.
