This month's selection of upcoming exhibitions and events features future visions of housing in the UK, a new platform for investigating the intersection between economies and the built environment, and a new exhibition from the Danish Architecture Centre praising the work on engineers. There’s also a showing of the Alvin Boyarsky drawing collection which charts the early work of contemporary notable architects plus an update on this year’s World Architecture Festival.
