Justine Clark, Maryam Gusheh, Emma Williamson and Kieran Wong are the creative directors of the 2020 National Architecture Conference, which will take “Leverage” as its theme.
The conference will ask a number of questions about how architecture can be leveraged to effect change. How can we exploit our contemporary professional circumstance, training and knowledge to instigate positive change well beyond our disciplinary remit? How can architectural wit and intelligence, agility and diligence, cheekiness and humour, restraint and flamboyance, ethics and goodwill maximise impact and advantage?
