PlaceLabs: Powershift

03 June 2020

17:30 -19:00

Who’s top dog now? During past months, true power structures have been revealed and their resilience tested. At the same time, we’ve glimpsed different ways to live, forcing us to re-evaluate what matters. Seen in this new light, the value of our homes, our streets and our cities is being redefined.

In this LabCast, we explore how a shift in power will affect place-making and places in the future. How will our cities be reimagined? Who will reinvent them? What new lines of power will be drawn or shared?

PlaceLabs opens the floor to three provocateurs and practitioners bringing international perspectives on these power shifts. Join Meredith Bossin, Director of Engagement at the Waterloo Greenway Conservancy, a wondrous cultural parkland in the heart of Austin, Texas. Hanna Benihoud, artist, architect and activist based in London whose work explores gender and youth. And Ayaz Basrai, of the BusRide design studio in India, who focuses on design that is both speculative and social.

PlaceLabs encourages surprise interactions that blurs the boundaries between speakers and guests. Join us to throw open new ideas and compare global experiences.
