Organised by Alejandro Zaera-Polo & Guillermo Fernandez-Abascal

Global Architectural Political Event - London (NOTE: Change of start time to 6pm)

Series: Symposium
Date: Friday 2 June 2017
Time: 18:00
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 189 mins

“Global Architectural Political Events” are a series of public debates that continue the investigation about the political re-engagement of the discipline, as analysed in Alejandro Zaera-Polo’s essay “Well into the 21st Century” and the “Global Architectural Compass”.

Challenging the outlined categories, their relationships and their featured protagonists, the expected outcome of the series is a new iteration of the diagram. The discussions will take place across different cities around the world throughout 2017 with the participation of several of the offices featured in the map.

The schedule for the evening will be as follows:
1. An introduction by Alejandro Zaera-Polo and Guillermo Fernandez-Abascal
2. Assembly with Adam Khan Architects, amid.cero9, Territorial Agency, Architecture00, Liam Young and Serie Architects
3. A closing discussion between Patrik Schumacher and Alejandro Zaera-Polo

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
