Wednesday 7th February 5.30-8pm Museum of Bath Architecture BA1 5NA

Resilient Architecture



Alex Ely is Founding Director of Mæ, a London based architecture and urban design studio. The studio has established an international reputation for sustainable architecture and urbanism and specifically for the design of innovative housing and social infrastructure. Alex leads Mæ’s design direction; the quality of which has been recognized in numerous awards including the RIBA Stirling Prize 2023 and Stirling Prize shortlisting in 2022. Alex also advises government and the Mayor of London on urban and planning policy promoting an agenda of design excellence. He has recently published ‘Towards a Resilient Architecture’, a book that explores how we can design more inclusive and environmentally conscientious buildings and places. 


Alex’s talk will set out the polemical of his recent book ‘Towards a Resilient Architecture’, which considers how we can create sustainable designs which promote social equity, whilst working within our planet’s limits. Using key examples of built and unbuilt projects by the practice, the discussion will explore the interconnected social, sustainable, and spatial principles that underpin the design of more inclusive and environmentally conscientious buildings and places. 




Doors open at 5.30 for 6pm start.

The Museum of Bath Architecture is housed in the Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel, the Paragon Bath BA1 2LR


There will be an opportunity for ticket holders to explore the museum, which is currently closed to the public, before and after the talk.
