The Cities of Architecture new lecture series from the ACCA is set to focus on the recent contemporary architectural, urban and significance of our world, through the lens of eight different locations.
Cities of Architecture will bring together architects, writers and experts to discuss the art, philosophy, social history and popular culture of each city. Kicking off on February 16, the year will see a series of eight talks that reveal how we live, interact, play and grow in different urban landscapes.
