Event: Meeting Architecture Lectures
Location: Royal College of Art, SW7 & SW11
The RCA’s Meeting Architecture lectures are a series of talks between architects and artists about projects they have worked on together, organised by the British School at Rome.
Multi-disciplinary collaborations with architects were unusual prior to the groundbreaking 1956 exhibition This is Tomorrow at Whitechapel Gallery, but have since become an accepted process in architectural projects.
The RCA lectures include discussions by architects with artists, filmmakers, musicians and designers on their collaborative work, talking about conceiving an architectural project from the point of view of different artistic disciplines.
Participants include Anglo-Canadian architect Adam Caruso and the German artist Thomas Demand (5 Dec 2013), looking at projects such as Demand’s exhibition at the Nationalgalerie Berlin, and the architect David Adjaye with his composer brother Peter Adjaye (1 May 2014),
The Meeting Architecture Lectures take place at the Battersea and Kensington campuses of Royal College of Art from 22 Oct to 1 May 2014. Talks are free, but advance booking is required, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
