How do communities impact architecture, and how does architecture impact communities? We know how to create more sustainable buildings, but how can we create more sustainable communities? As our lives become increasingly interconnected how do the spaces, in which we interact, adapt to an ever-changing social landscape? We'll explore these issues and more in three dynamic evenings with local and international architects who have pioneered socially engaged design practices.
