Anssi Lassila is giving a lecture at the International Congress of Architects held in Budapest on July 2, 2021. The theme of the conference is Which Past Leads to Our Future. It seeks to explore how past experiences and traditions could be employed to address current concerns in innovative ways to build on in shaping the future to come. The curators of the conference program also ask how this can be done in dialogue between the architect and the client in a way that fosters mutual respect and understanding as a basis for creating something new and valuable.
