Glass-House Chats are monthly hour-long online spaces for conversation and connection, to ask questions and explore ideas, approaches and methods, share learning and meet others. They are free sessions for anyone interested, and are kept to around 10 participants to allow for open dialogue.

About this Session

As a nation, we don’t often talk about the process of building, converting or retrofitting. Be it housing, community facilities, streetscapes or shared public spaces, there is little public discussion and debate about the quality of what we build, people’s experience of the building process itself and how that impacts our ‘every day’.

In our December Chat, we will look at construction through the lens of care. We invite you to join us for this online conversation to explore how the choice and quality of materials, diversity and gender equality in the sector, the relationship between construction and heritage, and the social value opportunities that constriction can offer, can all bring more care into construction.

About the Series

The sessions will be chaired by The Glass-House team, who will briefly introduce the theme and then open the floor for an informal and open discussion among participants.

To ensure space for meaningful discussion, places are limited to a small group. Key discussion points will be collated and shared after each session, and Chatham house rules are kept when sharing any points from the event.
