Dezeen is livestreaming a series of architecture talks and discussions at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, which features presentations by architects including Wang Shu, David Adjaye, Amanda Levete and Elizabeth Diller. Tune in today from 11am to 6pm New York time.
The livestream will continue until 6pm (11pm UK time).
Dezeen is media partner for In Our Time: A Year of Architecture in a Day, which The Met is hosting for the second year running in the museum’s Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium.
The symposium brings together architects, artists, curators and filmmakers from around the world, each selected to present a project that has had a particular impact this year.
Our livestream will be split into two parts to coincide with the programme for the day, which can be seen in full on The Met’s website.
The first part of the livestream (from 11am to 1pm) features a keynote presentation by Pritzker Prize-winning Chinese architect Wang Shu about his Fuyang Cultural Complex in China, as well as a series of fast-paced talks about the year’s key buildings and projects, by architects including David Adjaye and Shih-Fu Peng.
Artist Lucy McRae will also screen her short film The Institute of Isolation, a fictional examination of the ways travellers to outer space could use architecture and design to train their bodies for the challenge.
During the second part of the livestream (from 2:30pm to 6pm), The Met’s associate curator of architecture and design, Beatrice Galilee – who organised the programme – will be in conversation with a creative leader at IKEA.
There will also be a panel discussion titled In Our Future: Radical Design Education, which will be moderated by the museum’s chair of education, Sandra Jackson-Dumont.
More short architecture presentations will come from figures including Amanda Levete, Elizabeth Diller, Junya Ishigami and Iwan Baan, before artist John Gerrard discusses his work Western Flag, a simulated flag of black smoke.
