Hoor Al Qasimi, the President of the Sharjah Architecture Triennial, and its curator Tosin Oshinowo, have announced the title and theme of the 2023 Triennial as “The Beauty of Impermanence: An Architecture of Adaptability”. The theme reflects on the issues of scarcity in the Global South, and how this challenge has created a “culture of re-use, re-appropriation, innovation, collaboration and adaptation”. Through these differing modes of practice, the event, which will be inaugurated in November 2023, will explore how people can “reorient global conversations to create a more sustainable, resilient, and equitable future”.
