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

Where:

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.
