10,958 days into the future

10,958 days into the future. This year’s AIA Middle East International Conference in Sharjah (UAE) looked into the future of the profession 30 years from now. Set up to advance the dialogue between architects and the community it was organized  as a series of open panel discussions and as one of the panel moderators I enjoyed two days filled with vivid, lucid and emotional conversations amongst our panelists, including Caroline Bos, Claudia Pasquero, Rachel Armstrong, Michel Pasquier, Ali Rahim, Raya Ani, Laila Kuznezov, and Patrik Schumacher. aia_10958_group_foto aia_10958_panelistsphoto credits: (c) AIA middle east
