A big thank you to all the wonderful people who we have worked with and for in 2019!
With the turbulent conditions of climate change, and growing injustice in resource distribution we continue to be inspired by the constancy of human kindness and creativity.

We look forward to more of both in 2020 and wish you all a cracking break.
Boasting a rich history of industrial firsts, it is unsurprising that the former Silk Mill in the centre of Derby is at the forefront of a potential step-change for the construction industry, as well as a striking permanent exhibit – a seven-tonne jet engine

Discussing how digital construction systems such as MassBespoke can enable local small scale fabrication of affordable homes.

Whether in the form of architectures, urban concepts, as an instruction in knowledge institutions or as a lifestyle – modernity is discussed as a socio-political construction, criticized and placed in relation to the current zeitgeist. But how does modernity work? What role do transition, ambivalence and in-betweenness play? In general, can the postulates of modernity be negotiated and updated, or are they no longer viable and therefore historicized?
This year HafenCity Lectures (https://hafencity-lectures.de) at the University of Hamburg are a series of talks to explore this subject.
Irena will be participating in a discussion on the 25th of June in Hamburg with:
Valentin Groebner (Historian, Luzern)
Cesar Peña (Architectual Theorist, Bogotá)
Steven ten Thije (Curator, Eindhoven)
