Het Nieuwe Instituut will be the first European partner venue of The World Around annual summit, which takes place from 29 January to 5 February 2022. The third edition of the summit celebrates “architecture and design’s now, near and next” with an expanded week-long event. Featuring two international live venues, the event will be dedicated to sharing critical and cutting-edge new projects and conversations in the fields of contemporary architecture, design and culture.

Taking place both online and in person, the 2022 summit will launch at Het Nieuwe Instituut on Saturday 29 January and will close at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City on Saturday 5 February. In this new, expanded format, two all-day conferences will take place on consecutive Saturdays along with a bespoke programme of original content, from articles to short films, which will be launched online during the week between. As in previous editions, global design practitioners will address their recently completed and under-construction projects  that speak to internationally pressing issues including climate change, racial and social equity, ecology, indigenous rights, digital technology and community.

Design and architecture platform The World Around’s 2022 Summit will be a round-up of compelling architectural, spatial, environmental and social projects from the last year. Limited in-person tickets will be available for both venues and a live-broadcast will stream online for free on multiple channels.
