Who Cares? AAD Lecture Series 2015-19

ARCSR exploring "humanitarian" architecture through a series of talks and informal debates hosted by architecture students at The School of Art, Architecture and Design between 2015-19.

Whether or not you identify with the word "humanitarian", the role of the architect in situations that are perhaps socio-politically complex, dealing with the management of scarce resources or attempting to better themselves with little or no capital is wide ranging and intriguing to many of us. This series examines and questions what it is to work in these environments, the motives for doing so and the reality of not for profit practice.

ARCSR are aiming to produce a publication which will be available in late 2020.
