FEED YOUR MIND AT LUNCH TIME: Living buildings: Towards sustainable cities

Location

Darwin Lecture theatre | Darwin Building (link Map)
access via Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Speaker information

Dr Rachel Armstrong

Dr Armstrong will discuss the potential of ‘metabolic materials’ that possess some of the properties of living systems. By generating such materials it is hoped that our cities will be able to replace the energy they draw from the environment, respond to the needs of their populations and eventually become regarded as ‘alive’ in the same way we think about parks or gardens. Metabolic materials could become a key sustainable technology with the potential to transform the world’s urban environments.
