UNKNOWN: Strategies and Solutions in Shaping the Built Environment
by Museum of Architecture and Melodie Leung Zaha Hadid Architects
For its third edition and as part of the London Festival of Architecture, "Unknown: Strategies and Solutions in Shaping the Built Environment" is the annual conference led by women in architecture co-curated by Melodie Leung, Senior Associate at Zaha Hadid Architects and the Museum of Architecture, supported by Finsa.
This year’s theme unpacks the notion of crossing into the unknown in design, architecture, art and science, discussing the boundaries and cultural borders created and traversed through drawing and communication, memory and imagination and collaboration.
In forging a new and previously unknown horizon of possibilities, how can we create relevant means of communication and ways of envisioning boundaries which are productive rather than limiting? How does memory affect the ability to respond to an unknown future? How can new strategies be fostered within the built environment when designing across scales, cultures and differences?
The three sessions will focus on the following themes: Drawing and Communication, Memory and Imagination and Collaboration.
Panel of speakers include, more to be confirmed: Kate Davies, Anne Beate Hovind, Rona Meyuchas-Koblenz, Cristina Diaz Moreno, Yara Sharif, Ellie Stathaki, Marina Otero Verzier, Jane Wernick.
