Our livestream will be split into two parts to coincide with the programme for the day, which can be seen in full on The Met’s website.

David Adjaye will speak about his National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC

The first part of the livestream (from 11am to 1pm) features a keynote presentation by Pritzker Prize-winning Chinese architect Wang Shu about his Fuyang Cultural Complex in China, as well as a series of fast-paced talks about the year’s key buildings and projects, by architects including David Adjaye and Shih-Fu Peng.

Artist Lucy McRae will also screen her short film The Institute of Isolation, a fictional examination of the ways travellers to outer space could use architecture and design to train their bodies for the challenge.
