Roundtable

Structural inequality: Why does diversity in architecture matter?

People who design our homes influence our lives. Are architects innovators - or people who impose their ideas on the rest of us? A great design can encourage us to move with the times and adopt healthier, more efficient habits. But if the industry is dominated by one race or culture, how does it impact society? Does diversity in architecture matter? Joining us at the Roundtable is Harbinder Singh Birdi, senior partner and Head of Infrastructure at Hawkins Brown Architects; Harriet Harriss, an architect who teaches at the Royal College of Art; Elsie Owusu, who is principal of her own architecture practice, and was the first chair of the Society of Black Architects; and Vinesh Pomal, from Tate Hindle architects. Roundtable is a discussion programme with an edge. Broadcast out of London and presented by David Foster, it's about bringing people to the table, listening to every opinion, and analysing every point of view. From fierce debate to reflective thinking, Roundtable discussions offer a different perspective on the issues that matter to you. Watch it every weekday at 15:30 GMT on TRT World.
