Paul Davies10 Apr 2014 20:00 / Artist Talk@Nest
Paul Davies, senior lecturer Architecture at London South Bank University, talks about the façade in (post)modern architecture.
Expect a talk which offers a cunning insight in the ideas behind Façadism from the point of view of an architect.
Davies sees a link between the work of Le Corbusier, that of Robert Venturi and Mecanoo; the architectural company from Delft responsible for the recent Birmingham library, which has been described as ‘a stack of gift wrapped presents’.
Not an expert in Architecture? Don’t worry, Paul Davies delivers his talks in an intelligent, yet understandable and entertaining manner.
