Adaptive re-use | Vince Squillace | Squillace
Celebrating the history of a building remains an important consideration when applying adaptive re-use principles in design.

Designing for experience and community | Simon Trude | Endrim
Delivering a unique experience of value to the community starts the activation of a space, and offering holistic health, wellness and flexibility over time.
Strategy lead design is dependent on the consideration of the complete lifecycle of a product, which can only come from innovative thinking and a well-defined key management process.

Good design principles coupled with adaptability and flexibility are the foundations of a truly sustainable built environment.

A glimpse into the future of architecture | Carmit Harnik Saar | NBRS Architecture
In 1982, the idea of humans and robots co-existing in a dystopian world could only be imagined through sci-fi movies.
Almost 40 years later, this image has become a reality, as a technological revolution presents new opportunities to develop innovative designs, techniques, and materials for a sustainable future.
Social architecture | India Mitchell | K20 Architecture
A building is not merely volume but something that can provoke an emotional response. Creating a connection between architecture, the environment and the end user is the focus of India Mitchell’s work, as she aims to design social spaces that are sustainable and have the power to engage with the wider community.
