Text from Arka: Nyasha Harper-Michon works under several titles such as architect, educator, business developer, writer, speaker, and last but not least ‘archtivist’ – a merge of architect and activist.
‘Archtivist‘ is a free-to-use term coined by Nyasha Harper-Michon that refers to people who drive environmental, social, and economic changes forward, who dare to look at their profession and practice within the building industry from a broader perspective and collaborate crosswise.
In this video, she speaks about why a system change is needed, and why the city is the place to start.
Concerning the designation of Copenhagen as The World Capital of Architecture 2023, the UIA- World Congress of Architects will be held in Copenhagen from 02 to 06 July.
