Architect@work London Returns As A Digital Summit

With A Focus On A Post-pandemic Society

27 + 28 January 2021

The Architect@Work talks programme has returned for 2021 as a digital summit. Over the past decade, this European trade show and exhibition has developed a reputation for tackling issues facing the profession, touching upon different materials and the environment that surrounds us. There has always been a continued focus on innovation and how architects can design a more sustainable future, across both cities and rural communities.

This year the organisers have dispensed with a specific theme but many of the panel discussions will be centred around our physical and mental wellbeing in a post-pandemic society. Without drawing specifically on design resolutions to a situation we don’t yet fully understand, the talks at A@W2021 will address a future vision on the places where we will live, work and socialise. They will explore how we care for the most vulnerable and the fact that good design and the environment do not have to be sacrificed in the process.

Alex de Rijke of dRMM will discuss his Maggie’s Centre in Oldham with Ab Rogers and Dame Laura Lee

It is important to gain a full picture of the built environment and so all the panels will feature speakers from a design background, as well as a client perspective – including commercial clients and local authorities. Some highlights include:

  • Healthy office environments as highlighted by the wellbeing expert Ben Channon and the head of design at The Office Group, Nasim Koerting;
  • Creating better homes for the elderly according to renowned architect Sarah Wigglesworth and Guy Flintoff from Retirement Villages;
  • Ways that we can make housing more equitable, featuring Sue Morgan – head of the Design Council – and rising star Yẹmí Aládérun from Islington and Shoreditch Housing Association;
  • The changes we will see to design outside that includes Transit Studio who organised the successful pedestrianisation project in Soho;
  • Considering the changing role of the suburbs with Peter Murray of the NLA and Georgie Day from Enfield Council;
  • And hear from two designers of the most recent Maggie’s Centres – Ab Rogers and Alex de Rijke – alongside the woman that commissioned them, Dame Laura Lee.

The six panels will take place on 27th and 28th January and anyone can register for free at

Desert Cast – Towards an Identity, Sharjah, UAE

Opening at 1971 – Design Space, The Flag Island, Sharjah, during the following timings:

Desert Cast – Towards an Identity Architecture Event

From 14 November 2020 onwards, visitors are welcome to view Extractions by UAE-based artist Talin Hazbar who has created public installations at the Flag Island, Al Dhaid Flag Square and Khorfakkan Flag Square within the context of the exhibition (own transportation is required). 1971 – Design Space will provide visitors with a map of the places upon request.

Furthermore, the series “XLVI” by the Desert Cast Team is on view at Al Badayer Retreat, Al Madam, approximately 1 hour drive from 1971 – Design Space, (own transportation is required).

About the Exhibition
Desert Cast – Towards an Identity is an exhibition by the three Kuwait-based designers Jassim AlNashmi, Kawther AlSaffar and Ricardas Blazukas. Hybridising motifs of Kuwait’s past and present, the exhibition contributes to the development of local design identity through its re-application of regional and borrowed elements. The trio invited the UAE-based designer Talin Hazbar to express her interpretation of Desert Cast by investigating the architecture of the United Arab Emirates through her research. The results are showcased through public installations titled Extractions, located within the Emirate of Sharjah.

1971 – Design Space has taken all the necessary precautions so that visitors can enjoy their stay while remaining as safe and comfortable as possible.

Modular Prefab & Construction Tech Senate Amsterdam, The Netherlands

November 2021

A digital disruption wave is hitting all industry sectors including construction and it is undoubtable that modular constructions can go hand-in-hand with technological development. The basis of volumetric modular systems, or prefabricated construction, is the initial digital 3D design and the ability to utilise Building Information Modelling
(BIM) to ensure the building is suitable for the planned location and design requirements. It is also behind the stackable modules used in several storey homes or larger industrial buildings, including hotels and office blocks.

McKinsey & Company calculated that, the market value for modular in new real-estate construction alone could reach $130 billion in Europe and the United States by 2030, delivering annual cost savings of $22 billion. In many countries, modular construction is still very much an outlier but there are strong signs of what could be a genuine broad-scale disruption in the making. It is already drawing in new competitors—and it will most likely create new winners and losers across the entire real estate and construction ecosystem.

Many factors determine whether a given market is likely to embrace modular construction, but the two biggest determinants are real-estate demand and the availability of skilled construction labor. In places such as Germany’s major cities and the southern part of the United Kingdom, labor shortages and large-scale unmet demand for housing intersect, making this model particularly relevant.

Join us at The Modular & Prefabrication Construction to earn insightful knowledge and fruitful discussion on understanding emerging construction technologies, including robotics, 3D imaging and even the use of RFID-BIM which are becoming increasingly leveraged to aid the design and development of modular construction. Those technological capabilities are enhanced, sped up and become more cost-effective and sustainable, when utilised in a controlled by factory setting.


• Learn how to enhance the prefab buildings design with an architectural approach • Develop the right digital manufacturing line for precast modules • Increase the efficiencies of modular construction with integrated supply chain system • Understand the tendering and contracting system in modular construction • Take advantage of the deployment of IoT, PPVC, DfMA, RFID-BIM, VDC, IDD, and prefab data center for off-site construction • Exploring the applications of wood concrete composite panels, mass engineered timber, and steel concrete composite systems

Please find attached PDF brochure for more content details and our contact information should you have any further inquiries.

Only limited seats are allocated for this Summit. Group registration package available with terms and conditions applied.

House for Cars. Bakhmetyevsky and Other Garages, Russia

On October 29, 2020, the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center opened the exhibition “House for Cars. Bakhmetyevsky and Other Garages”, which will show the era of the 1920s-1930s from a not quite familiar side: through the prism of the history of the Moscow garage.

The exposition in the space of the Jewish Museum – the former Bakhmetyevsky bus depot, built in the second half of the 1920s – will include three thematic sections that not only recreate the image of the era as a whole, but allow you to feel the specifics of the first decades of Soviet motorization and see the beauty of early garage architecture.

The exhibition will show projects of garages of the 1920s-1930s from Moscow and federal archives, including materials previously unknown to the general public, vehicles of this period, personal belongings and documents of such famous heroes of their time as Vladimir Mayakovsky, Viktor Shklovsky, Konstantin Melnikov, Vasily Shukhov and many others.
Exhibition curators: Liya Chechik and Olga Shurygina.

Lucca Biennale X Edition postponed to 2021

Aug 1st – Sep 26, 2021


As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic developments, the organizing committee of Lucca Biennale Cartasia has decided to postpone the tenth edition of the event from August 1st to September 26th, 2021.

Lucca Biennale X Edition 2021

We are working and will continue to work to maintain the safety of all those who work at or participate in the event, as artists and audience, and to maintain the integrity of the Biennale and its many sections.

That is why the Biennale does not stop. Great ideas are planned for the next edition: events, exhibitions, seminars, conferences involving countries such as Japan, as well as artists and speakers from all over the world. We are working on an edition rich in culture, art, events to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the event.

Postponing the event is above all a form of respect towards the city of Lucca, the participating artists and the public involved: we are going to be able to gather again in summer 2021, to live together the beauty of art.

After the tenth edition, in 2021, the eleventh edition will take place, as planned, in 2022 bringing the Lucca Biennale back to even years.

Thanks to every single person who continues to support us, we are at your disposal for any request.

To all, a deep wish for creativity, art and culture.

Oman Real Estate Expo 2021, Muscat, Oman, The Middle East

22 – 24 March 2021

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe, the decision has been taken to postpone Oman Real Estate Exhibition (OREX) 2020, 30th March to 1st April 2020.

ODBW will now take place between 22 to 24 March 2021, at the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC), Muscat, Oman.

This decision is supported by the Ministry of Health, Oman Real Estate Association and Omanexpo.

We have been having regular dialogue with the Ministry of Health, Oman, as well as the Oman Real Estate Association, in relation to COVID-19. We as organisers must commend the way that the COVID 19 (Coronavirus) outbreak is being very competently controlled in Oman, we must be conscious that many organisations within our community are currently facing difficulties travelling around the world. It is for these travel reasons that ODBW will be postponed until 2021.

Hall 2, Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre, Muscat, Sultanate of Oman

This property event is held concurrently with Oman Design & Build Week.

OREX is endorsed by the main regulators and facilitators in Oman: The Ministry of Housing and Oman Real Estate Association.
