The architectural profession is called to respond to environmental, social, demographic and pandemic shocks and stresses. As architects in the era of information, we take advantage of technology and data to help us manage urban risk and design resilient, flexible environments that improve our everyday experience.
Erez Ella, Founding Partner of HQ Architects, an international practice based in Tel Aviv, alongside Katerina Dionysopoulou and Billy Mavropoulos, founders of London-based practice Bureau de Change, will discuss translating technology and data into physical space, understanding social behaviour and end-user needs and applying a thoughtful and caring approach in creating urban, institutional, and living environments.
Join us for a panel discussion chaired by Amy Frearson, editor-at-large for Dezeen, where we will explore what care is and where it’s happening in the context of urban fabric and how to design places and spaces that are more reactive to ongoing and future changes.
HQ Architects was founded in Tel Aviv in 2008 by Erez Ella, and is currently comprised by a creative and dedicated team of 35 people based in Tel Aviv.
Focusing on a strong pragmatic and programmatic approach, HQ Architects strives to question conventions and create culturally challenging buildings, spaces and urban environments. The practice combines rigorous research, investigative curiosity and search for ingenuity in all our projects, which results in contextual, innovative and high-quality design. Our methodology showcases both playfulness and strong technical expertise, spearheading the design and construction over many projects of various scales in Israel and abroad.
