Designing Against Disaster

In partnership with It's Freezing in LA!
Saturday 5th October 2019, 1-2pm

Ahead of the upcoming exhibition ‘Eco-Visionaries’ at the Royal Academy, discover how architecture and design can address environmental disaster and ecological change.
Green architecture has long been in the minds of our designers and architects, but the current climate crisis requires a dramatic rethinking of how we build. Join Samaneh Moafi of 2018 Turner Prize-nominated Forensic Architecture and Gonzalo Herrero Delicado, RA Curator, as they discuss how design relates to environmental change and human agency. This event is curated by Contraand It's Freezing in LA!as part of their ongoing collaboration exploring the intersections between conflict and the environment.
