The realm of finance and risk management involves the identification, analysis, and mitigation of uncertainty, all of which are necessary for, and inseparable from financial return and performance.

This panel will explore:

  • How can architecture become an instrument of risk management, capable of wielding influence over economics and politics rather than being at the whim of both?
  • How can a discipline that has traditionally been thought of in material and cultural terms be reconsidered in financial and socioeconomic ones?
