Join leading thinkers and designers as they explore the positive potential in architecture and take a closer look at how it can overcome boundaries of race, gender, or ability.

Architecture is often seen as something that generates boundaries, rather than helping to break them down. Most spaces we live and work in today follow a general set of rules and norms that make them inaccessible to at least some of their users. From out-of-reach kitchen cabinets and narrow pavements to spaces that simply do not allow for access, growth and change, architecture can stop people from living to their full capacity.

Social, cultural and economic inequalities are literally built into our buildings and cities. But instead of dwelling on these boundaries, we’ll be inviting academics, journalists and designers to consider how creative and generous architecture can create spaces of inclusion.
