What about architecture as an urban project? Meet Alice Diestch, Director Amanda Levete Architects- AL_A, speaker at SHARE Serbia

Alice Diestch, Director AL_A, will be analysing the input of architecture in the urban projects within SHARE Serbia 2023. This year, the International Architecture Forum will take place on November 16th at the Metropol Palace Hotel.



The fifth edition of The International Architecture Forum SHARE Serbia 2023 will host three sessions and will include topics of interest, in line with society’s current concerns to create urban spaces and buildings able to address climate challenges and the wellbeing of the inhabitants or workers. The sessions will be focused on Good living and working architecture, with a focus on residential buildings, on Designing Façades, and on Large-scale projects.




Alice has been a director of AL_A since 2012 having joined the studio as Future Systems in 2006. She has a deep interest in architecture as urban propositions which continues to inform her approach with each new project. Her working methods are driven by extensive research, experimentation, and intellectual challenge.





Looking at the MAAT in Lisbon, the V&A in London and Thong Lo in Bangkok, Alice will talk about buildings that have been transformative for their cities through their engagement with public space and context.

One of the main focuses of the lecture will be how AL_A is planning to achieve engagement with the public in terms of architecture, in Belgrade, at the Philharmonic Concert Hall, a project led by Amanda Levete Architects- AL_A, and which is still ongoing.

Other projects included in the presentation are the D’Ieteren Headquarters (Belgium), as well as the V&A Exhibition Road Quarter (United Kingdom), which will be deeply analysed for their complexity, as well as for their potential of connecting to the public.
