Next Gen: Architecture And Activism – How To Make An Impact

It was truly an honour to give a keynote on the main stage at the UIA World Congress of Architecture about Architecture and Activism, alongside change maker and politician, Councillor HY William Chan, with a panel moderated by Master of Ceremonies Connie Hedegaard.

The session was a powerful platform to discuss the need for a new movement: Archtivism, as well as a call for us to ditch “Reference Man” -an unrepresentative archetype- and form intergenerational and sectoral allyship to drive social and environmental change.

It was so special to speak on a stage that hosted such inspiring voices throughout the congress like Francis KéréYasmeen LariMargrethe VestagerBjarke IngelsJan GehlKunle AdeyemiChris Downey, AIA and many more.
