Is there an architecture of resistance that stands in the face of commercial globalisation, that rejects the iconic image, that celebrates the sprit of individual place?
Sustaining Identity II will unite visionaries and practitioners from different generations, cultures and geographies - from Africa, South America, Europe, Asia and the Americas - to debate that the creation of enduring, uniquely localised, people-centred space is still possible and desirable.
The event is hosted by the RIBA Trust as part of the V&A + RIBA Architecture Partnership and moderated by Jonathan Glancey, Architecture Critic, The Guardian.
Sustaining Identity Symposium II is on 26 November 2009 from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm.
Venue: V&A, Cromwell Road, London SW7 2RL.
