Recent years have seen growing interest in the issue of adaptability in the built environment. This interest has been stimulated by a number of factors, including increasing rates of technological change, concerns about potential climate change and a desire to make the built environment more sustainable by extending the life of our building stock.

The conference will explore these and other questions by providing a range of perspectives on adaptability, relating to design, culture, management, business and sustainability.
