About The World Around

The World Around is a new platform dedicated to the ‘now, near and next’ in architectural culture. Their Earth Day symposium is a collaboration with Facebook as part of the first “Virtual Design Festival”, taking place free and live on the Virtual Design Festival website, where TWA presents new content and conversations commissioned from over twenty international voices leading new and exciting global discourses on environmental design. Amid the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic, The World Around’s Earth Day online symposium remains committed to uniting and mobilizing the global architecture and design community around the most pressing issues of our time: the now, near and next for architecture, spatial and environmental design.
