The Bartlett's International Lecture Series welcomes experts, visionaries, and skilled professionals from across the world to share ideas and provide their unique insight. Live-streamed to YouTube, the sessions were watched by 15,000 people last year. 

This spring, the series welcome speakers from America, Asia and Europe, and includes lectures exploring and challenging the way the urban environment is planned and built, the pillars of the design process and the impact of new materials on the future of the built environment. 

Every lecture will explore, directly or indirectly, fresh strategies for research-led teaching, learning and practice as well as opening questions related to our built and un-built environment, discipline, and profession. The series aims to expose different modes and methodologies of design and design thinking to embrace urgencies, subtleties, and complexities of social, spatial, and environmental justice.
