In this public lecture, Daniel Mangabeira argues that architects play a key role as builders of social well-being. His award-winning practice, BLOCO Arquitetos, asserts the social role of the architect through a meticulous process of design and construction that refrains from any preconceived aesthetic. This approach will be illustrated by a wide range of projects.

Daniel Mangabeira graduated (with distinction) from the MA Architecture programme at the University of Westminster in 2013. He was subsequently elected President of the Council of Architecture and Urbanism at the Federal District of Brazil. The work of BLOCO Arquitetos is often featured in the architectural press and has been widely presented across Latin America. This is their first talk in the UK.

The event is chaired by Davide Deriu, Reader in Architectural History and Theory at the University of Westminster. Everyone is welcome.
