Date & Time

17.09.2020 19.11.2020


In a time of unprecedented global challenges, it is crucial to reflect on the role of architects, urban designers and educators, and the potential for the design discipline to generate positive contributions. The lecture series brings together a group of practitioners who operate amongst real world challenges, but bring innovative and forward-thinking solutions derived from teaching and research. They use nonconformist thinking around architecture, urbanism, technology, and philosophy to address societal challenges and seek new opportunities beyond traditional modes of practice.
