Nearing the conclusion of the exhibition I Will Eat This Sleepy Town, the artists Ben Washington and Marcin Dudek, joined by director of Waterside Project Space Pierre d’Alancaisez and former curator of architecture and design at MOMA Tina di Carlo, discuss their attempts to describe the world.

They will consider the exhibition in relation to the visionary architectural practices of the 1970s and the role of the 'model' in building, design and research.
