Now in its third cycle and currently in residence at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, former Metropolitan Museum of Art curator Beatrice Galilee’s brainchild The World Around returns on January 30 for another day-long marathon of contemporary architecture.

Following 2020’s inaugural event and an all-digital program four months later for Earth Day, this year’s offering sees the platform continue to address a host of timely issues — the environment, equity and more — through the lens of a diverse cohort of emerging and established practitioners.

Offering a virtual and live tour of cities and cultural institutions on almost every continent, the 2021 Summit will feature both streamed and local in-person discussions in 10 international cities.  Among the 20 featured presenters at the partially online affair are Nairobi-based Cave_Bureau, who will showcase their conceptual Museum of the Anthropocene, Madrid-based Ensamble Studio elucidating their “cultivated” Earth residence Ca’n House, Sir David Adjaye on the City of Winter Park and Counterspace’s Sumayya Vally.
