2021 Global Architecture Exchanges: Impacts of COVID-19 on architecture - Topic 4, Session 1 of 2

This is Session 1 of 2 for Topic 4 in the 2021 Global Architecture Exchanges series: The impacts of COVID-19 on the way we practise architecture

Topic 4, Session 2 was held on 17 November 2021. This session includes speakers from Ireland, New Zealand, South Korea, the Netherlands, China and the UK.

This session explores how technology as a tool has enabled us to change how we practise architecture. Now is the opportunity to use the same tool to address social inequalities and encourage more diversity in the workplace (gender
equality, social background, inclusivity). The speakers also discuss how solutions currently being implemented in response to COVID-19 can reinforce, and potentially worsen some of the challenges that discourage a more diverse profession as well as
how COVID-19 demonstrates that the profession is resilient and open to change.
