The Architecture Symposium: Housing Futures will explore alternative models of housing and the impact of the climate, pandemic and recession crises.
In this video, curators Hannah Tribe and Andrew Burns explain how the future is “a really interesting conundrum in a year that’s completely blasted our future out of all recognition.”
The symposium will be delivered in a new four-part online format. Participants can choose to take part in just one, or all of the sessions.
“We ask, in four sessions, how the architects anticipated their future in these works, how they dealt with sustainability, affordability, density, city-making, delight, and how they would reconceive these projects looking into the future,” Tribe said.
Burns added, “While COVID-19 presents challenges to urbanism, we strongly believe that density is essential for sustainability. An attractive, walkable, compact city is a key element in preserving natural landscapes outside the city.”
Each session will close with a panel discussion lead by Hannah Tribe and Andrew Burns.
