On March 1st, I was pleased to join host Sophie Stravens at the Center for Architecture and Urban Design Tilburg on their quarterly talkshow BOUWSTOF (building material in dutch).
In the talkshow, I spoke about the need for Archtivism, combining architecture and activism, and the intersection of these two fields. An archtivist refers to a professional or enthusiast within the architecture and building industry who actively promotes and inspires reform, aiming to bring about positive changes in society and within the architectural profession.
The discussion led to the five different types of Archtivists, each with their own focus and objectives. More on the 5 types of Archtivists here.
