Presented in response to Al Jazeera’s documentary series Rebel Architecture, this talk brought together filmmakers and architects to explore how the architect’s role is being redefined by current critical economic and social conditions, addressing questions regarding the links between architecture and politics.  Subversive Spanish architect Santiago Cirugeda (featured in ‘Guerrilla Architect’, the first episode of the Rebel Architecture series) presented his recent work, followed by a discussion with filmmaker and assistant series producer Ana Naomi de Sousa, and chaired by architect and curator Gonzalo Herrero Delicado and film researcher and curator Erica Faleiro Rodrigues.  Rebel Architecture uncovers the architects who are shunning the glamour of ‘starchitecture’ in turn using design to tackle the world’s urban, environmental and social crises.



This event was part of the ongoing ICA's 'Culture Now' series and the London Festival of Architecture programme. The event was selected by Architects' Journal amongst their highlighted recommendations for the 2015 LFA programme.
