British-Iranian architect, researcher and educator Omid Kamvari will be at Asia House on Wednesday 18 November to discuss the role of architecture in the 21st century Middle Eastern city.
Omid will explore how we need to critically look at the way in which we imagine and plan the cities of the future.

About Architecture Asia
Asia House presents a new series of talks, exploring the impact various architects from around the world have had on architectural innovation either through working in Asia, or being inspired by their connection to Asia, and how this informs their work internationally.
The aim is to foster relations, raise awareness and promote a discourse around new cityscapes and buildings for the 21st century, whilst reflecting on the role of architects in relation to our architectural heritage, customs and our built environment.
