COUNTDOWN TO CONFERENCE
Join us at the Johannesburg mini-conference, in a dialogue about how architecture plays a role in influencing policy to guide sustainable urbanisation whilst ensuring the human dignity of the communities it serves and bringing in effect spatial justice.
CA+HR has been represented in Baku to address this conversation and continues to host two conferences in Johannesburg and Hong Kong later this year, with dedicated events leading up to the RIO 2020 UIA world congress, following which a report will be produced on the work that has been done for the duration of the program.

Key Note Speaker
Rod Hackney is a British architect and past president of the Royal Institute of British Architects and International Union of Architects.
Rod Hackney's Inner City objective is a simple one. Only by living in slums can professionals and communities efficiently work together to overcome crowded, dirty, and run-down environments. His successful results alleviated poverty, halted social decay, degradation and riots, whilst creating sustainable jobs, recycling waste, reducing harmful emissions and producing green environments. His slum upgrading skills were acknowledged by the Paris based Union Internationale des Architectes (UIA). The UIA Sir Robert Mathew Prize citation stated that Rod Hackney's "work represents an extremely innovative approach to community architecture. Here, as a member of the community, the architect assumes the role of organizer and teacher, helping people to improve their own living environment. The technology transfer is part of a process in community design and reconstruction".
