For the fourth talk in our Architecture Anew series, we focused on architects working beyond the traditional boundaries of the discipline to develop socially motivated projects.
This a recording of a virtual event held on 15 June 2021.
Architectural training provides a wide range of skills that makes architects uniquely suited to developing creative projects far beyond just the designing of buildings. From mapping terrains and communities, to developing revolutionary apps, creating documentary films, and undertaking radical fieldwork, architects are increasingly utilising their varied skillsets to develop humanitarian projects.
