Join the Salters’ Institute on Thursday 9 September 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm for our Lunch Time Lecture with Professor of Experimental Architecture, Dr Rachel Armstrong.
Rachel will discuss chemistry from the perspective of the design of our cities and how we might be able to turn around the impacts of modern architecture, which notoriously contributes to 40% of global carbon emissions. Learn about “living” architecture and explore the future of civilisation without fossil fuel, including the development of off-planet worlds! There will also be a chance to take part in a live Q&A.
