Material and moderation
It’s always odd to watch oneself talking, but here I am discussing Materials 2017 which will take place next year.
So many buildings that look interesting in drawings disappoint because the materials are not right – and of course the details, but what do you detail but materials? Sustainability is also all about ‘fabric first’ so you have to understand the fabric.
Understanding what materials are available and what they can do is vital – this is an exciting opportunity to learn more. The speakers are great and the sessions are intended to give a taste of many materials, rather than concentrating on one.
And the moderation of the title? Well, I will be the moderator. Apparently this is what one says nowadays, rather than chair. I will be practicing my moderate behaviour.
