TAB 2015 Symposium
Kultuurikatel, Põhja pst 27a
The symposium is a two-day lively architectural discussion. Its lecture-based schedule boasts with practicing architects, urban planners, thinkers, etc. The colourful palette of concepts culminates at the end of the day with a roundtable discussion.
This year's TAB Symposium will take an interdisciplinary route, looking at the way space, technology and community intertwine in the context of the third industrial revolution. By bringing together opinion leaders from diverse fields to discuss the connections between spatial environment, economy, technology and the evolution of society, it will open a public debate about matters that will influence the daily lives of everyone living in the not-so-distant future: How will I move around? Where will energy come from? Where will we find resources to sustainably manage our communities, cities and states? The symposium will attempt to imagine the future of our spatial environment and the role of architecture and planning professionals in its creation. Detailed information about the topics and speakers is available here.
