Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Decades of underprovision, combined with unprecedented population growth mean that buildings have to work more efficiently than ever before, both in terms of their uses and the resources they use. The pressures of climate change also mean sustainability is no longer an add-on but the starting point for any discussion about how, where and what we build.?
So how do we overcome these challenges. How can we ensure that more is also better? And what can we do to give people the homes, buildings, neighbourhoods and cities they need?
Alex Ely (Founding Director, Mæ architects) explores the integrated thinking that the practice believe is necessary to solving today’s urban, social and environmental challenges.
This talk is part of a series of events including exhibitions at the Schusev State Museum of Architecture, Moscow (31 January – 10 May), and the Palazzo Mora, Venice Biennale (23 May – 29 November).
