The World Around, a new global forum, will host its first edition on January 25, 2020 at The TimesCenter in New York City. The day-long event uses quick-fire presentations, conversations and discussions to present the â€˜now, near and next' in architecture today. Designed to be accessible and engaging for anyone interested in the culture of architecture, the event brings together leading international practitioners and thinkers who operate in and around the wider spatial environment. Invited speakers will present landscapes, urban and rural planning projects, art, activism, environmental research, space studies, sculpture, film and game design. We will hear far-reaching discussions about the most vital current and upcoming building projects, the most significant developments in technology and the environment, and the most promising new ideas that are shaping our world to come.
Participants include Elizabeth Diller, Shohei Shigematsu, Paola Antonelli, Bruce Mau, Junya Ishigami, Noura Al Sayeh-Holtrop, Emmanuel Pratt, Shumon Basar, and Marina Tabassum.
Tickets are limited and available now. Prices: $45 for students and faculty (valid ID required); $125 for general admission; $225 for a two-ticket general admission package.
