Now in its ninth year, in 2021 New Now Next takes place online and virtually for the second time, enabling a wider domestic and international audience to connect with the events.
Having kicked off with a talk by Kate Orff in May, registration is now open for the second event of the series, a conversation on Thursday 9 September with Eyal Weizman, founding director of Forensic Architecture and Professor of Spatial and Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London. The talk will be moderated by writer, editor, and curator Shumon Basar.
Our 2021 series will conclude with a conversation between 2021 Pritzker Laureates Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal and 2020 Pritzker Laureates Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara in November.
New Now Next is supported by Arup. All events are free.
Established in 2005, the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF) is an independent organisation dedicated to the promotion of architecture as culture. We encourage people to engage with their built environment, to inspire new ways of thinking about architecture.
We truly believe architecture has the power to improve the way we live and how we think about our built environment. By bringing people together from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, we can create a more inclusive conversation that will inspire a better-built environment for everyone.
