DSDHA will present their ongoing research on the relationship between risk and innovation in architecture at the one-day symposium 'Freedom and Creativity' organised by the Royal Academy of Arts.
Focusing on how architecture is practiced, Director Deborah Saunt will explore the troubled nexus between the architectural necessity of risk-taking and a building environment predicated on the minimisation of risk; she will demonstrate how risk aversion challenges the core ambition for innovation in the discipline, and will speculate on possible new routes and alternatives.
Saturday 28 November, 11am – 6pm
