This year’s series will explore how architecture can remain potent, essential, whilst ‘sustaining’ its agency in an increasingly complicated and diverse world. Key elements of quality design, new technology, and understanding architects’ responsibility to the environment and active citizenship are vital to its endurance and the 2019 line-up has been selected to reflect this. The line-up of talks taking place throughout the year in Dublin includes some of the most intriguing and inspiring people now from the world of architecture.
One of the best-known Japanese architects today, Sou Fujimoto rose to fame after winning the Architectural Review Awards prize for emerging personalities in the world of architecture for three years in a row and in 2013 he became the youngest architect to design the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London. In 2012 he was part of the Japanese team that won a Golden Lion award for Best National Participation at the Venice Architecture Biennale for their design of alternative housing concepts for the homes that were destroyed by the tsunami.
