Beatrice Galilee said, “As much as architecture is about bricks and mortar, steel and glass, it is also about how we think, feel, live, work, play, and dream. At The World Around, we reflected on how new ideas in architecture are affecting people’s lives in areas from urban planning to game design, from tech development to community-based projects. We also considered the broader forces that are sparking contemporary architectural culture, whether they’re art or activism, environmental studies or spatial research.”
