Space for architecture

"Space for Architecture - the social purpose and poetic possibilities of this most complicated career".

Date: 02/02/2015

On the occasion of the awarding of the RIBA Royal Gold Medal to Sheila O'Donnell and John Tuomey, The Cass is hosting a colloquium devoted to a topic chosen by Sheila and John: "Space for Architecture - the social purpose and poetic possibilities of this most complicated career". 

In addition to Sheila and John, we have the rare opportunity to hear contributions from Tod Williams and Billie Tsien (architects, NYC) and from Prof. David Leatherbarrow (University of Pennsylvania), as well as from Stephen Witherford and William Mann (winners of last year's Stirling Prize) and from Robert Mull (Dean of The Cass). 

The topic is not only of major concern to these architects and thinkers, but addresses the heart of the discipline and its capacity to contribute to civic culture.
