MoA’s thematic programming on Architecture and Citizenship explores the relationship between politics and the built environment with the aim of helping architects become active agents of social change.

How do we create local culture from scratch for new developments and how do we preserve local culture in regeneration projects? How do architects respond to the needs of different social groups? How well does contemporary architecture respond to local contexts and cultural diversity? As different building typologies emerge out of the needs of specific social groups, this talk will consider how communities are shaped through architecture and how architects are in turn shaping their work around the requirements of different communities. From co-housing and community-led development, to multi-generational homes and housing for the third age, this talk will examine the interplay between social cohesion, collaboration, community engagement and architecture.
