University of Westminster’s School of Architecture and Cities brings together a unique milieu of Architecture, Planning, Housing, Urban Design, Tourism and Events students, amongst others. Prompted by this year’s burning theme of LFA, we are hosting a PechaKucha-style event debating boundaries in a truly interdisciplinary style. To future architects, boundaries are questions of belonging, power, exclusion and the story of a city. Future tourism and events experts are starting to understand the implications of boundaries on travel and whether city limits are even there in tourists’ perceptions. Our future planners are inheriting a world in dire need of inclusive plans, but how do we create those in the face of tectonic social and economic shifts? On June 3rd, in 120 minutes, we will consider these themes from a wide range of disciplines. Undergraduate and postgraduate students, early career and established researchers will answer the brief of producing 20 slides each, using their studio works, coursework and research as a base for exploring their own understanding of this layered topic. We will also feature graphic outputs of ongoing and recently completed projects addressing these questions. Join us for an engaging night of wide-ranging ideas, fast paced presentations and vivid discussions.
