Open Boundary, an open discussion platform on the contemporary interactions of architecture and design, will be realised on 4th June, 17:30 at Turkish Trade Center’s London centre as part of London Festival of Architecture.
Organised by architecture practice MeMAlondon, Open Boundary is a roundtable that aims to bring boundaries up in relation to diversified habitats. Speakers will include Dilek Öztürk, Co-Founder of IN-BETWEEN Design Platform; Alper Derinboğaz, founder of Salon Architects; Zeynep Aydemir, researcher on architectural design learning; and Mert Eyiler founder of MeMAlondon.
The roundtable will take its reference from Göbeklitepe as the point of zero for architecture and the connection between boundaries and the ways we will practice architecture and design in the future. Discussions may consider varying conceptualisations of the word ‘boundary’ and responses to this concept.
