Architecture and Displacement

  • HdM Gallery 42 Conduit Street London, England, W1S 2YH United Kingdom (map)

As of 2018, 68.5 million people were forcibly displaced, some in camps just barely meeting their basic needs. In this second part series (our first talk explored art and conflict) Suhair Khan invites us to look at architecture and displacement. How can we effectively deal with the migration challenge? Migration is not a new phenomenon but in some places, urban planning and asylum policies have reached a deadlock. We explore with leaders in their field the challenges and solutions to provide adequate urban planning so that people can resettle, return or integrate.  

Curated and chaired by Suhair Khan, Leader, Google Arts & Culture
