Sacred Cows | Prof. Lesley Lokko


The Department of Architecture & The Graduate Program in Urban Design are happy to invite you to a guest lecture: Prof. Lesley Lokko - 'Sacred Cows'.

Generally speaking, institutions are built to withstand change, not encourage it. Following the global protests and pandemic of the past two years, this lecture speculates on different approaches to architectural education that might encourage institutions to give up a few of their sacred cows in favour of a more equitable, diverse and inclusive future.

Prof. Lesley Lokko is the founder and director of the African Futures Institute (AFI) in Accra, Ghana. She is a leading academic, editor, and novelist. In December 2021, she was appointed Curator of Biennale Architettura 2023 of La Biennale di Venezia.
