“Following the recent publication of AECOMs Future of Infrastructure report, we are pleased to examine the role of architecture in infrastructure design at the Leaders in Architecture summit. Drawing on examples inside and outside the region, we will look at the importance of infrastructure in creating the character and identity of cities, and how designers can influence that character by an early involvement in infrastructure design.”
