Who Cares? talks

The Who Cares? talks are returning this year, tackling questions on the topic of humanitarian design both abroad and closer to home. The platform aims to bring together architecture students, architects and various organisations to talk about self-initiated architectural projects in marginalised communities in both developed and developing countries.

We have an exciting list of speakers this year, including Mara Weiss from Public Works, Anna Webster from Orkid Studio, Julia King (who worked on the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2016), Hadrian Garrard from Create London and Katherine McNeil from Architecture for Humanity. Look out for informaton on fliers and posters around the school and join our Facebook group for the latest updates.
