Lecture is led in English.

Cities change – and sometimes quite dramatically – but they change within a structure inherited from their pasts. Architecture’s role is to discover possible variations and alterations within these structures, to show how changing cultures can be accommodated and enabled to thrive. Today, we have new expectations about our work life, our habits of learning, our approach to health, and our sense of well-being, and these shifts are challenging our understanding of successful urban areas. We expect greater synergy and coherence together with a wider variation of resources. Might an understanding of a city’s morphology help us govern change and encourage a richer and more effectively integrated urbanity within its existing structure? Prof. Lawrence Barth will try to answer these question during his lecture.


The lecture will be accompanied by a summary of workshop prepared by students of the AA School of Architecture, whose task was to find new ideas for several areas in the Mokotów district.
