Champ is honoured to support the upcoming symposium UNBUILT, curated by Melodie Leung (Champ Architecture Editor) at the Ace Hotel London.

An afternoon bringing together women in architecture to reflect on and highlight the achievements, ideas, and dialogues which may have never been built, yet profoundly contribute to the built environment that surrounds us. Any design practice, as well as the architecture industry as a whole, exists as the result of a continually evolving body of work and collaborative associations. To consider the impact and intention of this process before they fall from memory, is to acknowledge how the ideas which shape tomorrow are rooted in the transformation of the designs of yesterday and today.

The symposium will feature Alison Brooks, Eva JiricnaHélène BinetKate Goodwin, Head of Architecture and Drue Heinz Curator at Royal Academy of ArtsJane DuncanFrancesca Hughes, Francesca Sarti of Arabeschi di LatteLily JencksMadelon Vriesendorp, Melissa Woolford of Museum of ArchitectureSarah Castle of IF_DO, Tatiana von Preussen of vPPR, Suzanne Trocme, Sara Klomps (Zaha Hadid Architects), Lisa Rammig (Eckersley O’Callaghan) and Manijeh Verges (Head of Lectures at the Architectural Association).

Curated by Melodie Leung, Zaha Hadid Architects, a series of panels will reflect on the values and strategies embraced in the Design Process such as Abstraction, Innovation, Evolution, Revolution, and Longevity.

This event will begin with An Unbuilt Brunch in collaboration with Arabeschi di Lattehttp://www.acehotel.com/calendar/london/unbuilt-brunch-arabeschi-di-latte

The proceeds of this event will be donated to charities selected by London Festival of Architecture.
