The World Around Summit 2021

The World Around

In 2021, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum welcomed a yearlong residency for The World Around, a new, itinerant nonprofit organization dedicated to telling contemporary architecture’s most critical and inspiring stories. Combining the Guggenheim’s contribution to architectural history through its constellation of iconic museums and The World Around’s agile and interdisciplinary approach to architecture’s future, the residency is a collaborative programming partnership that will focus on design’s profound role in social, environmental, and spatial justice. Using a range of formats, including public programs, commissioned films, curated conversations, social media takeovers and hybrid online events and experiences, The World Around invites ongoing exploration of architecture’s “now, near, and next.”
