The CCA has launched A Section of Now: Social Norms and Rituals as Sites for Architectural Intervention, an exhibition and a companion book, conceived as part of the one-year investigation Catching Up with Life.

?While contemporary values are rapidly reshaping the built environment, architecture is not only responsive but can also, at its best, anticipate and even influence the direction of society through spatial endeavours,? says the CCA.
