As we live in increasingly confined and restricted situations, how can we carve out new architectures of time and space for ourselves? For action, self-expression and self-care, of ourselves and others. By bringing in perspectives from the physical to the virtual, the immaterial to the material and from the individual to the collective, this panel will discuss the relevance and need for architectures for the self.
