Johanna Hurme - Architecture Against Ambivalence

According to Johanna Hurme, we cannot afford to litter our world with mediocre & disposable architecture. We need to recognize that the difference between the good & the bad is long-term vision, intelligence & care, not the price tag. By presenting a series of case studies, projects & processes, Johanna will demonstrate how design can provide answers to problems far greater than the task at hand, & how by thinking beyond the ordinary we all can help create an undeniably better world. This talk will be preceded by a short performance by flamenco guitarist, Baraa Safaa.
