Can architecture be used to record our memories and shape perceptions of past events? Can it help us better understand today?
In this talk, celebrated architect Sir David Adjaye examines the idea of the monument and explores how architecture and form can be used as storytelling devices, in conversation with architect and curator Nikolaus Hirsch.
