This year’s LFA digital symposium, in partnership with Royal Academy will capture, challenge, and explore the relationship between power, people and our built environment.

Please note, this event is taking place online via Zoom.

Emerging and established voices will contribute to two sessions consisting of presentations and discussion – investigating the complex power relationships involved in the production of architecture, how it impacts people’s lives and how it can be used as a tool to affect change.

With presentations on issues ranging from London’s digital visibility to the notion of housing as a signifier of social standing, the first panel will examine “power of place” in both geographical and digital terms.

The second panel will attempt to understand key conversations around the “power of people”, including political activism as an alternative mode of urban design practice as well as the role of community protest in relations to the Olympic Games.

This event is organised in partnership with the London Festival of Architecture.
