Event description

Description

In 'Remembering the Future', Darran Anderson will re-assess utopian ideas in an age of pessimism. In contrast to our technological advances, we seem increasingly powerless and disconnected from our urban surroundings. Looking at projects from Bauhaus to Bjarke Ingels, Anderson will examine the challenges we face and what is needed to reclaim the city for the citizen.

He has lectured for the British Council at the Venice Architecture Biennale and has given talks for the London School of Economics, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the London Festival of Architecture, the Robin Boyd Foundation and other groups.
