Join us for our November Talks series featuring Anupama Kundoo, Daniel Barber, Amin Taha and Ebony Shire

We are hosting a series of lectures, the November Talks, in partnership with the Sto Foundation, to bring to light new and radical perspectives on the built environment, delivered by practitioners and thought leaders paving the way for a more sustainable and more equitable future.

The lectures will all be free to attend and will take place on Mondays throughout November at 6.30 pm. The first two lectures will be online only and over Zoom, the latter two will be hybrid, being hosted in-person at the newly revamped (courtesy of DSDHA) National Youth Theatre.
