Critical Care. Architecture for a broken planet

08 June 2021

18:00 -19:30

Together with the Delegation of Flanders (Embassy of Belgium) and the Flanders Architecture Institute the Austrian Cultural Forum London is thrilled to host a panel discussion about the very topical role of architecture and urbanism to address and solve today's environmental and social issues!

Presenting a panel of experts from Austria, Flanders and the UK the event will look at the opportunities, new concepts and the relationships between economy, ecology and work.

The director of the Architekturzentrum Vienna, Angelika Fitz and curator Elke Krasny will give an insight into their exhibition 'Critical Care', which demonstrated how architecture and urbanism can contribute to repairing the future and keeping the planet and its inhabitants alive.

They are joined by Sofie De Caigny (Director of the Flanders Architecture Institute), Hülya Ertas (Architect and Exhibitions & Publications Coordinator at the Flanders Architecture Institute), Kim Trogal (lecturer at the Canterbury School of Architecture, University of the Creative Arts) and Liza Fior from the London based collective muf.
The collective is one of 21 international practices featured in the exhibition demonstrating how architecture and urban development can help repair the future and keep the planet and its inhabitants alive.

The panel discussion will be moderated by the award-winning environment journalist Fiona Harvey, Environment Correspondent for The Guardian.

Please sign up for this event on the ACF London website before 4pm on 8 June.
You will receive a link & password via email on the day of the panel discussion.
