Architecture and Citizenship: Who are we designing for?




Lectures London, UK February 13, 2017 - February 13, 2017

In their daily practice, architects and designers work with different types of publics, ranging from private individuals, groups and communities, to corporations or public institutions. Defined and guided by these relationships, the architects’ work both reflects those very publics and actively constructs them by giving shape to their their needs, desires, social status, and aspirations.

This talk will bring together seven speakers whose work is closely related to different types of publics, be it as clients or final users. The categories – individual, family, community, city, region, country and international – will point to the wide-ranging impact that designing for each group has within the broader context of a civic society.
