Architecture still lies at the intersection between collective and individual identity. Churchill recognised the connection between architecture and identity when he said ‘we shape our buildings and afterwards our buildings shape us’. Whether consciously or not, people identify with their surroundings.
Our theme for this year’s festival is ‘identity’ – we feel there could hardly be a more appropriate theme for us to explore this year. Our Core Programme brings together the events which respond in interesting or novel ways to this theme. You can browse the Core Programme below or search our entire programme – including the Core and Fringe programme – of events here.
