When people think about sustainable design in the built environment, it is often our city’s buildings and their resource demand that take centre stage. The London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) has played a major role in shaping London's energy policy over the last year through wide consultation and a truly collaborative approach.

But sustainable design isn't just about our buildings. In fact, the spaces between the buildings – our public realm – can exhibit a different kind of sustainability, one that reflects their visitors’ sense of comfort, safety and delight.

This talk will explore how people experience the public realm through their physiology, how the design of buildings can influence the way people perceive their surroundings, and how microclimate assessment can increase the sustainability of outdoor spaces. By referring to LETI's successes, the talk will explore opportunities to use a similar approach to enact change in other aspects of our built environment.

Is it time for our industry to come together to take control of our public realm?
