YOUR VOICE MATTERS!

The perspective of students and young professionals is important to bring into play for a nuanced and diverse understanding of the challenges we face and how we design solutions for it. That is why we’ve put focus on involving students & young professionals through sessions created or curated by students and you can find a range of “Next Gen” sessions in the official programme.

You can also get involved in competitions and activities for students. Read more below.

“My North Star vision is an inclusive, sustainable, and regenerative future where people and nature thrive. My biggest wish is that architects and building industry professionals go beyond their titles and degrees, pushing the boundaries of their professions, doing more than simply designing and building buildings but rather igniting the movement of change our people and planet so desperately need. In essence, we must go beyond architecture as we know it and veer towards Archtivism.”
