“We established The World Around to meet the need for accessible, mind-opening public discussions about our spatial environment, considered from the wide-ranging perspectives of today’s most influential practitioners and thinkers,” British curator Beatrice Galilee has said about The World Around, an architecture forum that launches in New York this week. Part of an event platform that Galilee created with private equity executive Diego Marroquin and Alexandra Hodkowski, the conference will unpack the ideas and impact of ten new projects, places, and exhibitions slated for the year. The day-long event’s speakers include Diller Scofidio + Renfro cofounder Elizabeth Diller, OMA New York’s Shohei Shigematsu, MoMA’s senior curator of architecture and design Paola Antonelli, Canadian designer Bruce Mau, and the Victoria and Albert’s chief curator Catherine Ince.
