The livestream has now ended, but you can still watch the full day of talks. The first part of the symposium is embedded at the top of this story, while the second part can be watched below.

Dezeen was media partner for In Our Time: A Year of Architecture in a Day, which The Met hosted for the second year running in the museum's Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium.

The symposium brought together architects, artists, curators and filmmakers from around the world, each selected to present a project that has had a particular impact this year.

Our livestream will be split into two parts to coincide with the programme for the day, which can be seen in full on The Met's website.

The first part of the livestream featured a keynote presentation by Pritzker Prize-winning Chinese architect Wang Shu about his Fuyang Cultural Complex in China, as well as a series of fast-paced talks about the year's key buildings and projects, by architects including David Adjaye and Shih-Fu Peng.

Artist Lucy McRae screened her short film The Institute of Isolation, a fictional examination of the ways travellers to outer space could use architecture and design to train their bodies for the challenge.
