Can schematic ideas provoke real world solutions to crises present in the world today? Will the value of the unbuilt ever be as influential as a built project? During a time when business is not as usual, architects are positioned to lead the way by collectively drawing on a unique capacity for imagination and pragmatism.

To celebrate the relaunch of the AA Prize for Unbuilt Work after a decade-long hiatus, Architecture Australia presents a discussion that explores the many ways in which architects engage with serious world challenges. Rory Hyde, 2021 AA Prize for Unbuilt Work juror, will be joined on the panel by Julian Anderson, director at Bates Smart and winner of the 2021 AA Prize for Unbuilt Work; Lauren Garner, architect at Kerstin Thompson Architects and shortlisted entrant; and Jacqui Alexander, director at Alexander Sheridan Architecture and shortlisted entrant.
