We are delighted to welcome three fantastic speakers Corinna Gardner, Rory Hyde and Alastair Parvin, who will discuss the politics of objects, architecture and infrastructure through their pioneering work.

Corinna Gardner is a Curator of Contemporary Product Design and Rory Hyde is a Curator of Contemporary Architecture and Urbanism at the V&A Museum in London, where they recently co-curated the critically acclaimed Rapid Response Collecting display, a continually adaptive dialogue into the real-world impact of contemporary design. Corinna and Rory will share their work on pushing a progressive agenda with museum contexts and its impact on public engagement.

Alastair Parvin is the Co-founder of Wikihouse, Strategic designer at 00 and the co-author of 'A Right to Build'. His work focuses on housing crises, open production & citizen-led cities. Alastair will share his work on the Wikihouse and explore its impact on the future of open source architecture.

Hope to see you all there!
