Issue 59 December 2020 Preview

In the next issue of Design & Build Review, out in December, we’ll be exploring the realities of climate change, and what steps architects can take to help. We’ll offer a primer of key data and developments in climate change, providing where we are, what needs to happen to prevent the worst and what role architects can play. We’ll also look at lessons from the pre-air conditioning age for climate adaptive building design, and highlight some of the projects pioneering in this space.

Elsewhere, we’ll be looking at how the pandemic is impacting residential projects. A rise in home working has prompted a drop in demand for office space, and empty offices are now beginning to be converted into residential space – but will this become a trend? Plus we’ll look at how community is becoming ever more important to residential design.

Finally, we’ll be looking at Open BIM to find out what benefits it brings, and why growing numbers of architects are adopting it.
