International design practitioners will discuss their recently completed and under-construction projects in relation to climate change, racial and social equity, ecology, indigenous rights, digital technology, and ideas of community. They’ve just announced the full list of architects, artists, filmmakers, and researchers who will speak at the Guggenheim on February 5, which includes Pritzker-Prize winning architect Tadao Ando, author Amitav Ghosh, artist Himali Singh Soin, design studio Formafantasma, architects MVRDV, and Miriam Hillawi Abraham, Ursula Biemann, DAAR, Design Earth, Limbo Accra, Camila Marambio, Monument Lab, Sebastian Lopez Brach, Ooze, Open ArchitecturePaulo Tavares, Amie Siegel, Top Manta, and Chris Hildrey.
