We ask: how can we futureproof historical architecture to meet our technological and health needs? And in our desire for a greener planet, how can reimagining past designs improve our future?
Right now, in our ever-changing city, there are plans to transform Sydney’s former industrial areas into dynamic new precincts, and buildings that have long stood empty are being invigorated with new life.
Many of the changes ensure that these structures not only serve new purposes but also use less energy and are more sustainable than their former incarnations. As workspace design is adapted for the post-COVID-19 environment, we are seeing radical shifts in the ways people use these buildings for work and play.
The panel brings together professionals from the fields of architecture, building, heritage and design to discuss how Sydney’s unique historical architecture can be incorporated into these bold new visions and how contemporary building design can retain valuable heritage.
