Where: The Building Centre, London
A one day conference convened by Professor Lesley Millar, Director of the International Textile Research Centre, Professor Simon Olding, Director of the Crafts Study Centre, and Allan Atlee, Head of the Canterbury School of Architecture, University for the Creative Arts

The keynote speakers are the Dutch designer Petra Blaisse and the architect and academic Piers Taylor.
The conference speakers include: Richard Kindersley, Jo McCallum, Christopher Tipping,
Philip Koomen, . Closing remarks will be by the Professor of Architecture at the University
for the Creative Arts, with a welcome by Professor Bashir Makhoul, Vice Chancellor.
