On 26 November, Kieran Wong will be part of a panel organised by the WA Chapter of Architects Declare that will debate how as a profession we might tackle the climate and ecological emergency.
Questions tackled by the panel include:
- What is the architect’s role in reshaping design culture – and community expectations and demands – in the face of environmental planetary limits?
- What targets do we need to establish to ensure a safe, liveable and resilient built environment in a changing climate?
- How can we collectively develop the tools and knowledge we need to reform the design and construction of buildings, and educate clients and users?
- How might we galvanise the public imagination, popular support and political leadership, to build the net-zero carbon buildings of the future, and upgrade existing stock to these new standards?
Together, the panel will tackle these thorny questions in a facilitated discussion, as we seek to understand and define how we might reposition architecture, and turn threats into opportunities to create a better world.
Architects Declare WA invites all architects – registered and non, signatories and those yet-to sign – to join them and contribute their knowledge, experience and voice to this important movement.
