Mæ Architects: Towards a Resilient Architecture

Architecture on Stage

Mae building

Join Alex Ely, founding director of Mæ, and Smith Mordak, Director of Sustainability and Physics at Buro Happold to talk about Mæ's new book ’Towards a Resilient Architecture’

This polemical book considers how we can create sustainable designs which promote social equity, whilst working within our planet’s limits.

Using key examples of built and unbuilt projects by the practice, the discussion will explore the interconnected social, sustainable, and spatial principles that underpin the design of more inclusive and environmentally conscientious buildings and places.

The discussion will be chaired by Rosie Murphy from the Architects Climate Action Network (ACAN)


The Architecture Foundation, in association with the Barbican, presents Architecture on Stage – a programme of talks by the world's leading architects.
