Architecture in the City: Architecture and Cultural Identity

Listen to Architecture in the City: Architecture and Cultural Identity

In this video, architect David Gianotten draws on research he did for the Venice Architecture Biennale, talking about why it’s important to immerse yourself in a city in order to appropriately design for its culture. He’s joined in conversation by Virginia Trioli.

The new edition of Assemble Papers, which talks about some of these issues, was released at the end of this event.

David Gianotten is a managing director of the worldwide OMA architectural practice founded by Rem Koolhaas. He is based in Hong Kong and leads OMA in the Asia Pacific region.

Presented in association with Naomi Milgrom Foundation and the Australian Institute of Architects.
