Useful Projects and Expedition Engineering are delighted to announce that we’ll be taking part in this year’s Green Sky Thinking event, taking place in London from 15-19 May 2017.

Loosefit vs made-to-measure: how should we tailor buildings for an uncertain future?

On Tuesday 16th May, Useful Projects and Expedition Engineering will co-host a lively and thought-provoking discussion on the big sustainability and circular economy topic of the moment: How can we design buildings that can adapt to future needs and minimise resource use?

Taking our inspiration from our favourite quiz show QI, a panel of industry experts in sustainability and design will be pitched against the audience. Through a series of provocations, we will explore how we can design for an uncertain future: Is loose fit approach compatible with lean design? How will technology change our approach?

We are delighted that the evening will be chaired by Jeremy Myerson, Helen Hamlyn Professor of Design at the Royal College of Art. Panelists will include award winning product designer Robin Levien, Anna Woodeson, Director at LTS Architects, Sophie Thomas, Founding Director at communication designers Thomas.Matthews and Chris Wise, co-founder and Director at Expedition Engineering…  And all will be hosted by Judith Sykes, Director at Useful Projects and Expedition Engineering.

This event will appeal to architects, engineers, contractors, clients, consultants and academics with a keen interest and knowledge of circular economy principles. The event will take place at the recently refurbished Clove Creative Workspace in Shad Thames, home of the Useful Simple Trust.

Drinks and nibbles will be served and there will be opportunities for networking before and after the event. We look forward to welcoming you.
