Who Cares? Talks

Who Cares? Talks - The Cass explores Humanitarianism

Unit 6 developed a series of lectures titled ‘Who Cares?’, which is running for the third consecutive year. The series 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 are interested in research methods, the process of setting up a network of contacts and relationships, the challenges encountered during construction and reflections on how successful (or unsuccessful) realised projects were in benefitting the communities that they were placed in.

We hope that this platform will bring new opportunities for collaborations and participants will feel inspired to lead the way in transforming the communities that they live in as well as those abroad.

The talks are free and open to the public.
