RIBA + VitrA Talk: Rethink Sustainability with Mario Cucinella

Wed 29/05
18:30 - 20:00
RIBA Members/Students/Friend: £6, General: £12

The 2024 RIBA and VitrA ‘Challenge: Rethink’ talks series brings together practitioners who are leading the way in challenging expectations and rethinking conventional approaches, using architecture as a catalyst for positive urban and social change.

Join us for the next RIBA and VitrA talk with Mario Cucinella of Mario Cucinella Architects as he discusses Creative Empathy - An Exploration of Environmental Design.

The talk will explore the different contexts of building and regeneration in Italy, from rural revival to the transformation of cities. The connection between the past and present is a strong theme in this discourse, discussed through a lens of environmental design as explored in Mario Cucinella’s recent book, The Future is a Journey to The Past: Ten Stories About Architecture.

The talk will relate current projects to the themes featured in Cucinella’s book and emphasise the cultural and ethical thinking within sustainability, exploring ideas beyond pure technicality and regulations.

After the keynote, Mario will be joined in conversation by Samta Nadeem, Curatorial Director at STIR World, to explore themes such as regeneration, from rural revival to the transformation of cities and sustainability, exploring the differing contexts in Italy.
