LFA Symposium: Thresholds or barriers? Perspectives on boundaries and architecture

This year’s LFA symposium organised in collaboration with the Royal Academy offers a rich exploration of the role and application of boundaries in architecture and placemaking. Taking place in the RA's new David Chipperfield-designed lecture theatre, this day long symposium brings together a rich mix of speakers to explore the architecture of both tangible and intangible boundaries.

The symposium will conclude with a keynote in-conversation-with between Farshid Moussavi RA (Director of Farshid Moussavi Architecture and Professor in Practice of Architecture at Harvard Graduate School of Design) and Eyal Weizman (Director of Forensic Architecture and Professor of Spatial and Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London) disucssing the boundaries that both have faced in their work, both past and present, drawing upon their experiences in practice. The conversation will also touch upon questions around the agency of architecture in bridging spatial and social boundaries, as the discussion dives into the notion of boundaries as something to explore and challenge.
