For the London Design Festival, The Architectural Review is hosting two seminars at designjunction on Thursday 22 September, when copies of its relaunched magazine will be available to attendees
ALTERNATIVE MODELS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
The seminars explore some of the critical 21st century issues that have shaped the AR’s new editorial agenda, falling into the two essential categories: practice and education. Three high profile and varied speakers offer their thought provoking views on each topic, with an audience/panel Q&A at the end. The aim is to frame the discussion around strategies for survival in the fast-changing world of architecture.
