TBC new date - The Form Forum® - Materiality - Craft

We are in fast changing world with Covid-19, social unrest, climate change, diversity and inclusion and indigenous design all in the forefront of our minds.

As designers we are optimistic, we are problem solvers, and we have a strong desire to making a better future. We also acknowledge that these events will be with us for some time unless there is a real shift in behaviour..global behaviour.

We would like to explore in The Form Forum®️ - ‘What does the future of our built environment look like ? How do we support and develop our local design community? What new opportunities have arisen?’

The Form Forum®️ invites our community to unpack the challenges that face the built environment through the lens of materiality.

 Design leaders and key suppliers will discuss their approach to materiality, offering insights into different approaches that begin to address or unpack these topics.

Materiality is a scale, beginning with the micro, this first discussion centers around hand crafted or locally made materials.

Scaling out, the second discussion, 22nd September, considers the sustainability of the materials we select.

Both approaches seek to explore how materials will shape the future of our built environment.
