March 24, 2021 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Sto Werkstatt and British Council were proud to present ‘Can we live together?’ an online public debate which asked ‘What are the interplays and challenges of cultural identity and history as it affects the design process, materiality and final forms of architecture?’

Panellists explored the impact of design on the intended community and the public at large, discussing the call from Hashim Sarkis, Curator of the Biennale Architettura 2021, to ‘imagine spaces in which we can generously live together [and] the vital role of the architect as both cordial convener and custodian of the spatial contract’.

Chaired by Sevra Davis, Director of Architecture, Design and Fashion, British Council.
