Marking the launch of a year-long residency at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City, The World Around, a new cultural platform, presents 20 groundbreaking architecture and design projects from the past year as well as insights into work in the making at its second annual summit, held on Saturday, January 30. The World Around Summit 2021 will live-stream the latest work from award-winning international architects, designers, filmmakers, researchers, and artists confronting today’s most urgent topics, from equity, health, and the environment to racial justice and indigenous rights. Conference speakers will participate in situ from 14 cities and sites around the world, including Abu Dhabi; Burkina Faso; Johannesburg; London; Melbourne; Mexico City; Nairobi; Shanghai; Stockholm; Tokyo; and Yucatán, Mexico.
The day will be divided into three thematic sessions. Each session will conclude with a town hall during which members of the virtual audience will be able to ask questions and join in a live discussion. More information about the schedule will be shared closer to the program date.
