summary Sustainability in the built environment is difficult to define but easy to recognise. We can observe it in those buildings which have been with us for many decades, centuries, even millennia which have survived because they have proved to be fit-for-purpose(s), cost beneficial, environmentally friendly and culturally significant. The pastís relatively slow rate of change in building technology and social need allowed the evolutionary survival of buildings which are now our sustainability icons; but what of the future? How can we design for the future in a period of accelerating social, economic and technological change to secure a sustainable built environment which will be recognised and acknowledged by following generations.
