David Chipperfield will take part in a debate on the quality of our living spaces, organised by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture in collaboration with Europa Nostra. The debate, on 22 September 18.30 (CEST), will be livestreamed from Venice as part of a four-day programme of events for the European Cultural Heritage Summit 2021.
The panel will include Alain Berset, Swiss Federal Councillor for Home Affairs; Anne Katrin Bohle, German State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community; and Francisco De Paula Coelho, Dean of the European Investment Bank Institute. The discussion will address the Davos Declaration adopted by European Ministers of Culture in 2018, Towards a high-quality Baukultur for Europe, asking how Baukultur – well-designed spaces for living – can be defined and put into practice.
