Architecture and Inequity: New Practices of Care

10 June 2021

Join us online for a day of presentations, conversation, and keynote lectures, which aim to radically rethink the values that govern our cities.

This year, the LFA symposium goes digital to bring together established and emerging voices from across the globe. They will have critical conversations about the responsibility of architecture and architects to create equitable and caring environments.

Care has often been overlooked in the planning of our cities, sometimes lagging miles behind economic, functional or historic considerations. The LFA and the RA will bring together original research that considers the systemic inequalities in our cities and proposes positive approaches that explore the built environment from a critical perspective.

Drop in and join the discussion in the panels or listen to the two cutting edge keynote lectures during the event. At midday, Adrian Lahoud (Dean of the School of Architecture at the Royal College of Art and curator of the first Sharjah Architecture Triennial) will explore the close connection between inequity and climate change. The session will conclude with a conversation between Akil Scafe-Smith from Resolve (interdisciplinary design collective) and Tatiana Bilbao (founder of the eponymous studio based in Mexico City) on community-based and collaborative design.

Please note, this event is taking place online via Zoom.
