About the Event
As the new millennium unfolds, several disruptive challenges have emerged that suggest that we are heading for a major paradigm shift. These challenges are so prominent that they permeate almost every discussion, even casual conversations, we have – intelligent technology, work-life imbalance and instability, climate change, etc. In this talk, I reflect upon how these challenges have impacted my practice, in research, design and education. The talk will end with the dilemma in architecture – while we are the primary designers of the built environment, we are little engaged with the research that informs what the built environment ought to be.
