The Heat and Habitat in Cities Symposium
Adelaide – and cities around the world – are facing similar challenges: increasing population density, reduced open spaces, increasing urban heat, increasing need for cooling to combat with the heat, and urban pollution, to name a few.
With warming climates and increasingly unpredictable weather patterns, dealing with these challenges correctly has become even more critical. Cities need to be better managed and new developments need to be better planned and designed to be more resilient to future changes.
H2CS - Heat & Habitat in Cities Symposium, hosted by the School of Architecture and Built Environment at the University of Adelaide, will bring together international and national experts, policy makers, planners, designers and researchers to exchange knowledge, experience and expertise, and to discuss and debate concrete ideas for planning, designing, developing and improving our cities.
The outputs of the H2CS will be captured in a publication to be provided to the governments and be made available to other relevant organisations, as well as a Special Issue in Energy and Buildings journal (Elsevier Publication).
Any registered architects who attend the Symposium for two days will receive five CPD points.
