Designs on the Future NOW: Inaugural Lecture Series Videos

Three new female professors at the Sheffield School of Architecture (SSoA) gave inaugural lectures in November and December 2012, linked together by the common theme of ‘Designs on the Future Now’ and sharing the same aspiration of influencing the agenda of architectural education and practice. Each lecture picked up a facet of this challenge: mitigation/adaptation related to climate change, wealth discrepancies, and the urgent necessity for new forms of action.
