The symposium will start by exploring how young professionals are educated and prepared in the light of the rapidly changing practice of architecture, and how the nature of architecture itself could adapt to this "new reality". The second session will investigate the future of profession and how contemporary practising architects and educators can influence the future development of the discipline. Thanks to the presence of international speakers, the final session will consider what expanding globalisation means for the relevance, resilience, responsibility and role of architects. Read more

The FP7 project A2PBEER, the ERASMUS+ project in co-operation with EAAE (European Association of Architectural Education) and the Horizon 2020 (H2020) project PROF/TRAC continue. Furthermore a new H2020 project on the market up-take of energy efficiency through significant energy and architectural transformation with new volume additions, called ABRACADABRA, started in March.
All projects address issues related to sustainability, climate change, resource efficiency and building renovation.
