Prince Charles to add voice to high-rise building debate
The Prince of Wales will add his often controversial opinions to the debate about tall buildings after agreeing to speak about the issue at a highlevel conference early next month.
The Prince will speak at 'Building for the 21st Century', which will address the issue of building skyscrapers after the attacks on New York and Washington on 11 September.
The event will raise questions such as 'how can we build better, stronger, safer and more liveable buildings for the benefit of the people who occupy them and the communities in which they reside?'
Prince Charles will speak alongside Lord Foster, Arup's Nigel Thompson, the Corporation of London's Judith Mayhew, bioclimatic tower specialist Ken Yeang and DEGW's John Worthington.
The event will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre in Westminster from 9-11 December. Further details are available at www. buildingforthe21stcentury. com
