UNKNOWN: Strategies And Solutions In Shaping The Built Environment

7 JUNE 2019   
Aga Khan Centre / King’s Cross

For its third edition and as part of the London Festival of Architecture, “Unknown: Strategies and Solutions in Shaping the Built Environment” is the annual conference led by women in architecture co-curated by Melodie Leung, Senior Associate at Zaha Hadid Architects and the Museum of Architecture, and sponsored by Finsa.

​This year’s theme unpacks the notion of crossing into the unknown in design, architecture, art and science, discussing the boundaries and cultural borders created and traversed through drawing and communication, memory and imagination and collaboration.
In forging a new and previously unknown horizon of possibilities, how can we create relevant means of communication and ways of envisioning boundaries which are productive rather than limiting? How does memory affect the ability to respond to an unknown future? How can new strategies be fostered within the built environment when designing across scales, cultures and differences?

The three sessions will focus on the following themes: Collaboration, Memory and Imagination and Drawing and Communication.

Panel of speakers include: Kate Davies, Anne Katerine Dolven, Efrén Garcia Grinda, Anne Beate Hovind, Hayfa Matar, Rona Meyuchas-Koblenz, Cristina Díaz Moreno, Vicky Richardson, Yara Sharif, Ellie Stathaki, Marina Otero Verzier, Jane Wernicke and Yuge Zhou.


Watch highlights of the conference, including thoughts from the curators, Melodie Leung of Zaha Hadid Architects and Melissa Woolford of MoA, the speakers of the panels, and the architects of the Wooden Parliament,  AMID.cero9.
