The Global Architecture Exchanges are a unique online series of talks hosted in collaboration with other professional, global institutes of architects where we explore how architects are tackling universal challenges.
Join the RIAI on 17 November for the last topic of the year, Pandemic and Practice: On Site at The Marshall Building, LSE, Lincoln's Inn Fields, with Grafton Architects representing Ireland. Anne Henry, David Healy, and Fiona Hughes will discuss design and delivery of the new Marshall Building for the LSE during the pandemic. They will be joined by speakers from the UK, Netherlands, Brazil, China, South Korea, and New Zealand.
The event will be recorded, and the recording will be available at a later date.
About the session
Technology is a tool which has enabled us to change how we practise architecture. Now is the opportunity to use the same tool to address social inequalities and encourage more diversity in the workplace (gender equality, social background, inclusivity).
How can solutions currently being implemented in response to COVID-19 reinforce, and potentially worsen, some of the challenges that discourage a more diverse profession?
Join us and hear perspectives from architects on how COVID-19 demonstrates that the profession is resilient and open to change, through the Global Architecture Exchanges Topic 4 – ‘The impacts of COVID-19 on the way we practise architecture’.
The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) is a champion for quality architecture for the benefit of everyone in society. The RIAI is the registration and support body for architects in Ireland and provides support for architectural technologists.
