Fluid, dynamic and flexible, heritage places can coexist with innovative architecture for striking design, world-class sustainability outcomes and public engagement with a site’s past and future. I’m interested in how heritage conservation, interpretation and adaptive re-use can help build the cities of tomorrow.
