The Board of Education for the School of Architecture in Lund, Sweden, has together with guest Professor Sir Peter Cook, prepared the small Celebrating Architecture Symposium, on September 9, 2011.

The aim of this symposium is to create a dynamic dialogue where architecture, design and education are the main focus. With the help of merited guests, they are hoping to achieve a broad spectrum of dialogue and an innovative approach to progressive architectural education.

The theme this year is ‘What is the main focus in architecture today?’ More information on the event after the break.
