Irena Bauman invited to Tate Britain

Irena Bauman has been invited to chair a panel discussion exploring the issue of architecture and education in an event entitled ‘Buildings of Knowledge: Architecture for the Future of Learning’ at the Tate Britain on Wednesday 27th September. ‘The government is changing the landscape of education from children’s centres to new specialist academies. Along with reassessing policy, objectives and pedagogical methodologies, new buildings are at the top of the agenda. The debate is raging as to how buildings influence child development. What kind of impact do buildings have on intellect, creativity and innovation? At the end of the day, does design and architecture really matter?’ Architects Sarah Wigglesworth, David Adjaye and Thomas Mayne have been invited to join her on the panel to discuss the topic.
