Professor Koen Steemers - Environmental Diversity in Architecture

Koen Steemers will give a presentation on environmental diversity in Architecture

7 Mar 20175.30pm
7 Mar 20177.00pm

This presentation takes the position that the dynamic of the architectural environment is a key aspect of good design, yet one which is not well anticipated or understood. Enviornmental diversity is a design characteristic closely related to our experience of architecture - an architecture of the senses. Based on research findings, this presentation is an antidote to the misconceptions of 'optimum' environmental performance or fixed criteria, instead embracing the richness of environmental diversity.
