This series will convene young practices that have displayed a rigorous engagement in the making of architecture in the public realm and in response to the spectrum of issues that societies in acute transition are experiencing. The first lecture will include Nripal Adhikary from Nepal and Rizvi Hassan from Bangladesh.
This lecture series also marks the beginning of a broader project, The State of Architecture in South Asia, that will research, document, and create conversations around Architecture in South Asia and the emergent frameworks and models of practice. This multi-year project will ask the fundamental questions:
What will be the form of practice of Architecture in South Asia for the next generation?
Can Architecture address the abject inequities in this region?
What does Architecture practice in South Asia mean for women?
Does Architecture matter in geographies in transition?
We hope you can attend this lecture series and, through your participation, support the broader research project to build a platform that engages with questions about the making of Architecture in the region.
This event is initiated by The Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute (LMSAI), Graduate School of Design (GSD), and supported by The Architecture Foundation, India and The South Asia GSD Student Group.
