|Session 3: MASTERCLASS
Our industry influences the relationship between people and place. Yet, how do we know when we have done a good job? What is place and how do we measure it? In this session, Kylie Legge will conduct an interactive investigation into place experience, turning what we intuitively know about the environments that we interact with and turning these learnings into useable, comparable data.
