15:30 – Doors open for registration
16:00 – Seminar – 'Notes from the next industrial revolution' by Alistair Parvin, Co-founder of Wikihouse
Alastair Parvin is a strategic designer with 00 London, and the co-founder of WikiHouse Foundation. He is currently working on better housing systems, open production and citizen-led development. Although he trained in architecture, his work extends outside its traditional framework, looking at the economic, social, political and technological forces behind it. He is a co-inventor of WikiHouse, a digital building system which is using open design and distributed digital manufacturing to radically democratise the production of homes.
He also thinks, writes, speaks and advises companies, organisations and governments on housing crises, sustainable development, democratic cities and housing policy for the 21st century as well as on how open design and technology can be engaged to address some of the most critical social, environmental and economic challenges we face as a society.
17:00 – Meet the experts networking – complimentary bar
If you can't make the seminar, join us between 17:00 and 19:00 for our meet the experts networking. Make sure you have a glass in your hand as you chat with friends and colleagues from the design and construction community, and experts from the specification teams of some of the UK's leading architectural suppliers.
This is a great opportunity to get greater value from your supply chain – Where else can you chat with over 20 product experts in a two hour period, outside of the pressures of the office and right on your doorstep. (Oh and don't forget the free drinks!)
19:30 Specifi Dinner – free to all attendees
Free for attendees, our specifiers dinner is a relaxed affair (definitely no black tie here) and makes Specifi like no other event in the architecture and construction calendar.
