Woxsen University Hosts International Conference on Architecture and Built Environment Design

Woxsen University's school of architecture and planning recently conducted its Architecture and Design of Built Environment 2024 (ADoBE’24) conference, building on the success of the inaugural conference held in November last year. 

This year’s theme, 'CITIES: Embracing Inclusivity,' provided an exploration of the intricate and multifaceted nature of urban environments, focusing on how both authorities and citizens influence city development trajectories. 

The two-week-long ADoBE'24 conference from June 10 to June 24 attracted 235 participants from diverse backgrounds, including urban planners, architects, policymakers, industry professionals, community advocates, and academics. 

Matthias Ripp's keynote delved into sustainability and resilience in built heritage, stressing the importance of integrating these principles into conservation practices amidst societal changes like globalisation and gentrification.
