Venedigbiennalen 2016: Seminar — “Honestly Sweden, It’s Time for Equity”

Discussion held in the Nordic Pavilion amphitheatre on the 27th May 2016 (15th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia) between Krister Lindstedt (White Arkitekter), Johanna Hurme (Co-Founder, 5468796 Architecture), Åsa Bjerndell (White Arkitekter), Christer Larsson (Director of City Planning, Malmö), Monica von Schmalensee (CEO, White Arkitekter), David van der Leer (Director, Van Alen Institute), Max Zinnecker, and Sander Schuur. Moderated by Malin Zimm.
This seminar reports from the front of practice, where equity challenges the assumption that all users are able to accommodate the built environment in the same way. Architects can bring fairness to practice and secure a long-term perspective in a society in which change happens, not always as the result of decisions, but as a result of the passing of time.
