Architecture as collaboration, craft and placemaking
How do architects go about designing public places and buildings where people want to spend time – and which make them feel good about life? Amanda Levete discusses the importance of collaboration, the abiding role of craftsmanship and the value of placemaking; putting the well-being of the communities that public spaces serve at the heart of the process.
The founder of the award-winning architecture and design studio AL_A, she talks about the necessity of these factors in her projects, which range from the V&A in London, the museum’s largest building project in over a century which opens next year, to the new Museum of Art, Architecture & Technology in Lisbon which opens later this year and the MPavilion 2015 in Melbourne.
