Criss Cross

A new series of lectures curated by Cass alumna Zoƫ Berman explores the cross-disciplinary work of architecture.

The Criss Cross lectures at The Cass celebrate and investigate the richness of cross-disciplinary work between architecture and other creative fields. The series will cover a range of interdisciplinary topics including the relationship between architecture and art, dance, design, interiors and film.

Part of the public lecture programme at The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design, the talks are an opportunity to hear from both established and up and coming practitioners on their work and moments of sharing and learning from across different disciplines. Each talk will look at moments where a practice has worked in depth either with or for another field.

Curated by young architect and Cass alumna Zoë Berman, the series begins with a talk from Meredith Bowles, Director of Mole Architects, exploring the working practice of architecture and the nature of collaboration.

The full schedule of talks include:

  • Thursday 26 January – Meredith Bowles, Director of Mole Architects, on architecture and architects.

  • Thursday 2 February - Jose Esteves de Matos, Director of De Matos Ryan, on architecture and interiors.

  • Thursday 23 February – Celebration Week.

  • Thursday 9 March – The Decorators, on architecture, psychology, landscape and interiors.

Criss Cross runs on Thursday evenings starting 26 January until 9 March 2017 at 6.30pm in Room CE1-16, Central House.
