SAVE DATE 03 fnal

The current COVID-19 pandemic and its response have raised critical questions about how we live and work. It has also led to a lot of us asking, ‘How can we improve our own neighbourhood?’

At the fourth edition of Z-axis — the Charles Correa Foundation’s biennial conference — participants will draw their attention back to their own neighbourhoods to generate creative visions that uplift the public realm.

With a series of lectures in September, followed by a unique design challenge in October-November, Z-axis 2020 will host a number of international speakers focusing on these issues. A Jury will critique and recognise projects by participants — creative individuals who improve everyday life for their neighbours by making changes at four distinct levels — the neighbourhood, the commons, the street, and the doorstep.

Stay tuned for more updates regarding Z-axis 2020 — You and Your Neighborhood, and in the meantime, save these dates!
