Julia Barfield speaks about the role of the architect in society at Conscious Cities Festival 2018.
Conscious Cities Festival gathers those interested in the creation of people-centred environments. Research and practice using the conscious cities approach explores how architecture and urban design can better consider and respond to human needs through science informed design, data analysis and new technology.
This year’s festival looked at the key factors in creating a better built environment. The events over 4 days focused on architecture, urban design, urban data and tech, and behavioural science.
The focus of day 1 was architecture. Julia speaks about the role of the architect as an entrepreneur with a social responsibility. You can listen to Julia’s speech here.
