Let’s talk Architecture – the November Talks

Live lectures by luminaries and newcomers of contemporary architecture

With the support of the Sto Foundation, the November Talks festival has been bringing established greats and newcomers of contemporary architecture to the lecture halls of renowned European universities since 2006. At the November Talks, visitors can expect small and large insights into the world of architecture: in live lectures, the top-class speakers take a pointed look at current topics, ideas and challenges in the industry. Afterwards, the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and exchange ideas directly with the speakers. This creates an exciting discourse between practice and theory.
