The Youtopia Podcast
by Lauren-Lois Duah

Created by M.ARCH student Lauren-Lois Duah for her 4th Year Dissertation, the mini-series explores architecture at points of social change with a focus on the events of 2020 and how they provide scope for designing socially conscious architecture in the future.

The 4-episode series features four guests who have organised protests, disrupted educational barriers, created campaigns, formed networks. They share their stories, challenges, achievements, and aspirations; and the podcast discusses how the work they do positively disrupts ‘the system’ and creates opportunities for change.
