Please join renowned architect and educator Robert Adam as he presents his recently released book, Time for Architecture. He will explore how key architectural principles such as, timelessness, modernity, tradition, innovation, sustainability and heritage, are all based on our concept of time and memory and how this insight provides a new critical framework.
