As the final term of this 2015–16 academic year begins, so too does our 3-week Term 3 Public Programme, trialling a new lecture start time of 6.30pm to allow more people to make it to the Lecture Hall after work. This week’s unmissable lecture is a talk by Lars Müller on Analogue Realities where the graphic designer and publisher will discuss how real-time, virtual experiences are being replaced by more physical, analogue objects as the new avant-garde.
Also this week is Tuesday’s talk by David Robson on Minnette de Silva: The Life and Work of an Asian Woman Architect as part of our AA XX 100/ AA Collections Talks. Also on Tuesday is the book launch of Eric Parry Architects, Volume 3 by Eric Parry and Edwin Heathcote in the AA Bookshop. Then on Thursday, Council Member Elsie Owusu has organised a symposium on Albania: Architecture, Public Health & Urban Renaissance, starting at 10AM in the Lecture Hall. Friday sees another symposium Rethinking Architecture’s Agenda for the 21st Century: Launch of AD Parametricism 2.0 to launch the new issue of AD that was guest-edited by Patrik Schumacher, as well as the openings of four new exhibitions including the Nicolas Grospierre exhibition in the AA Gallery and the Paradise Lost exhibition in the Front Members’ Room. And finally on Saturday, there will be a gallery talk by Nicolas Grospierre to discuss Modern Forms: a subjective atlas of 20th-century architecture.
