Nasser Rabbat, Aga Khan Professor, MIT: Future City – What do we need to construct?

“A conversation between Philippe Rahm (Architect, Philippe Rahm Architects), Nasser Rabbat (Aga Khan Professor, MIT) and Joseph Grima (Architect and Writer) at the Future City Forum, 27 September 2013 in Liverpool.

The field of architecture not only addresses the building of physical structures and the shaping of space but also has a unique viewpoint on the social and historical constructs that are relevant when thinking about urban environments. This discussion addresses what we need to create in the present to shape how we will live in the future.

Part of Future City, a collaborative project between Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art and Liverpool Biennial for Qatar UK 2013 Year of Culture.”
