Has the pandemic transformed the architectural profession? The intertwining of architectural production, science, society, and spatial practice raises new questions that have been latent in the profession for years but have been brought to the fore by the pandemic. Drawing on ethnographic questionnaires to 130 architectural firms, architectural theorist Albena Yaneva makes the case for how the pandemic is causing us to rethink the social dimension of architecture and provides a compelling argument for the changing role of architectural design in a post-pandemic world.

Albena Yaneva is Professor of Architectural Theory at the University of Manchester, UK.

The talk, in cooperation with the Department of Architectural Theory at the Institute of Architecture at the TU Berlin, is part of the DAZ series “We need to talk!” and will be held in English.
