Iain Macdonald was invited to attend the new collaborative design studio at UCL

Prof. Iain Macdonald was invited to attend the new collaborative design studio ‘Atlas of Nuclear Islands’ at the Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London. ‘The new studio, titled ‘Atlas of Nuclear Islands’, challenges students to research and design the potential contribution of nuclear batteries (NB) for tackling global warming and the future of the built environment’ (UCL website, 2021). Iain commented in an event with the studio as ‘The transition to a digital data driven economy is throwing up many design and technical challenges for architects, engineers and industry. Providing a supply of intense localised, zero-carbon electricity and heat means that the nuclear battery can be a step change for an evolving type of modular advanced production which we hope will inspire students participating in this exciting collaboration’.
