Au programme

Londoners, locals, visitors and travellers - come and experience the architecture of power as you've never seen it before with insights from an architectural historian... Can we regard Westminster Abbey as a hi-tech, megastructure comparable to a 20th century masterpiece such as the Pompidou Centre in Paris? Or do we agree with the prominent architectural pundit Reyner Banham, who compared gothic cathedrals to ice cream vans? In what sense does the architecture of Buckingham Palace and No.10 Downing Street 'learn from Las Vegas' as prime examples of Venturi Scott Brown's 'Billboard Buildings'. What was the solution the last time a temporary Palace of Westminster was required? How did a now 'invisible' building on Whitehall become the blueprint for the Architecture of power in London? Join me as we explore questions such as these for what promises to be an original, perverse reading of the otherwise familiar architecture of Westminster.

Growing up in central London the architecture of this fascinating city has been a lifelong interest. I now have a Masters in Architectural History and Theory at UCL's School of architecture, the Bartlett and am continuing my research projects alongside giving regular tours of London both privately and for the Architecture Foundation. I also guest lecture at a number of universities including the Royal College of Art and look forward to introducing you to the architecture of this endlessly inspirational city.
