Our program offers two parallel tracks, allowing participants and viewers to think with each other through our present moment, either by following the live broadcast on our website or by participating in our workshop program, both in-person or virtually. The public is invited to further participate by becoming a member of the Archipelago Telegram group, where the discussion can continue after each conversation.
Thursday, May 6: Do We Need to Build?
Our broadcast will begin by challenging the assumption that disciplinary concerns within interiors, architecture, and landscape need always to produce material interventions. What are the ways that practitioners, teachers, and researchers can foster a critical approach towards their work, to step up or step back?
