Perhaps now more than ever before, we are all aware of the built environment that surrounds us, and of the impacts it has on the health of individuals, communities, and the planet. The Architecture of Place series, first launched in fall 2020, brings together the established and emerging voices working to create a better built future.From October through December 2021, the ICAA, INTBAU, and The Prince's Foundation will co-host The Architecture of Place: In Conversation with..., a new series of interviews featuring three architects from different backgrounds and points of view: Marianne Cusato, Ben Bolgar, and Galina Tachieva. Over the three-part series, each speaker will have the chance to play the role of both interviewer and interviewee. In each installment, one of the three architects will be interviewed by one of the others about the influences, experiences, and projects that have led to their design perspective on the architecture of place. At the end of each session, students from partnering university departments will pose additional questions to the speakers, followed by an open Q&A with attendees. The ICAA is excited to partner with the Kingston School of Art Department of Architecture and Landscape for this interview. Students from Kingston will make a special appearance and provide guest questions for the interviewee.The programs are free and open for public registration, and recorded versions of the programs will be made available to all.
