A talk by architect Peter Wilson.

Peter Wilson is one of the most internationally significant architects and architectural educators of the past 40 years. Studying at the Architectural Association in London in the 1970s, he subsequently became a key studio master at the school. His work is marked by great formal sophistication and sensitivity, motivated by an intense interest in the imaginative and figurative possibilities of architecture. Together with his partner, Julia Bolles, he has realised an extremely important sequence of projects over the last decades in Europe and beyond.

This event is free and open to all.

Organisers: Professor Mark Dorrian, ESALA, and Niall Hobhouse, Drawing Matter

There is an accompanying symposium to this lecture, Architectural Lineaments: Drawing and Narrative in the work of Peter Wilson, taking place on 10 April 2018.
