We are very proud to have been part of TEDx Bradford on 16th January this year. Irena spoke about how emerging technologies can enable socially useful production and collaborative ways of place making. Find out more about the Built InCommon network and MassBespoke – the innovative off-site construction system that Irena, Bauman Lyons and architect Matthew Murphy are developing to enable neighourhoods to self-build their own community-led housing.
A great series of 5 x 15 minute programmes on how we can all make small changes in our everyday lives to help bring about a big transformation towards de-growth and decarbonised society. The ideas include food, water, fashion, transport and use of space.

Twenty- five years ago in October 1994, 150 architects guests and exhibitors gathered in the Metropole Hotel, Llandrindod Wells for the inaugural, not yet Royal, Society of Architects in Wales Annual Conference and Exhibition. The conference posed the question: Architects Leaders or Follower?
It would be fascinating to see how much the architectural profession has changed in the quarter of century since then.
Irena will be considering how can we hold on to ethics in architectural practice.
