Sharjah Biennial 8 – Part 3
Parallel Seminar: 'Emergencies and Risk'
What is the role of architects, designers and artists concerning housing and communities? With increasing pressure on resources and space, and an increasingly volatile political climate how can we move from coping with aftermaths to try to mitigate risk before crises? Can design and architecture be a political act?
Moderator: Mehdi Sabet (Associate Professor, Architecture & Interior Design, School of Architecture and Design, AUS)/ Susi Platt (Architecture for Humanity’s leading post-Tsunami reconstruction designer)/ Michael Rakowitz (Artist; participating in Sharjah Biennial 8)
