In collaboration with the London Festival of Architecture, IAF will host a live, virtual panel discussion entitled Together We Care About Public Spaces as part of the Irish Architecture Foundation’s ‘Architects in Schools’ initiative 2021.
Syrian Architect Muhammad Achour and Designer Frank Monahan participated in this initiative. In their collaborative work with the students, the focus was on care, co-creation, pride, citizen engagement and ownership in the design of public space. How we care for our public realm is always relevant, even more so now as we adapt to life in a post-pandemic city.
What can London learn about collaborative design? The young people of today are the future decision makers. Their creativity is a latent treasure.
Let’s hear their voice as they express their ideas about how to care for communities’ public space, and celebrate their creativity and innovation.
Hosted by: Irish Architecture Foundation
