Other in-person events this month include NYCxDesign, Iceland’s largest design festival DesignMarch and the debut International Architecture Film Festival Barcelona, as a number of countries around the world tentatively ease coronavirus restrictions.

22 May to 21 November

After being delayed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 17th International Architecture Exhibition will finally kick off this May with 112 international participants from 46 countries, including first-time entrants Iraq, Grenada, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan.

“How will we live together?” is the guiding question of this year’s biennale, as posed by Hashim Sarkis, the event’s curator and dean of the MIT School of Architecture and Planning.

Participants will present their answers to this question across five different scales, from the individual and the household all the way up to the planet, while the Meetings on Architecture lecture series will see the topic debated by scholars and practitioners.

Highlights include The British Mosque, a special exhibition created by architect Shahed Saleem for the V&A pavilion, which will look at the ways that three self-built London mosques have adapted former pubs and residential houses into new hybrid architectures.
