An ever-popular part of the show, the annual programme of talks showcases the latest thinking within the architecture and design community.

As well as the 200+ product innovations, material curation plus networking opportunities, the talks area is a must-visit part of Architect@Work’s London event, which takes places 22-23 March at the Truman Brewery in the east of the city.

This year’s theme is Energy and Ecosystems, a topic that is expected to provoke timely and lively debate over the two days. The keynote discussion for 2023 comes from Groupwork founder Amin Taha.

Starting proceedings on the Wednesday is a session entitled ‘Positive About energy saving’ and features speakers including Gary Thornton, associate lighting director with architectural lighting specialists Nulty+; Sophie Werren, lead architects with flexible workspace specialists The Office Group; Kiru Balson, sustainability consultant with engineers Max Fordham. Chaired by design journalist Helen Parton, the debate will look at the energy buildings consume and how that challenges architects, designers and developers in terms of balancing the needs of tenants, funding of projects and design elements from landscaping to lighting.
