On the 29th of March 2018 the closing event of the FuturA research project on future roles of architects took place. Over 75 people from academia and practice attended the event in the Berlagezalen at the Faculty of Architecture in Delft to witness the outcomes of this 4-year project, conducted by Delft University of Technology, Radboud University Nijmegen and BNA. It was an inspiring day where a lot of knowledge was exchanged and people from academia and practice came together to discuss the future roles of architects. You can download the recap of the day and the two presentations by keynote speaker Flora Samuel and the futurA team below.
