The first edition of Shifting Perspectives took place on March 12, 2015. With this congress CHEOPS wanted to provide students, employees and external parties the chance to learn, debate, experience and gain knowledge. The congress was held at the TU/e campus.
The built environment is subject to constant changes. Our design strategies aim to adapt our buildings and cities to these changes. The theme of the 2015 edition was; Do we, and mostly; should we, change the way we work and think because of changes in our surroundings?
Shifting Perspectives 2015 focussed on 3 topics, namely:
- Quality of life
- Smart living environments
- Sustainable transformation
During Shifting Perspectives 2015, several speakers from various disciplines within and without the built environment shared their bright views on the shifting perspectives of our built environment.
