Organised and hosted by Marina Lathouri
Series: HCT Debates
Venue: 32 First Floor Back, Architectural Association London
The HCT Debates provide a venue for exchange of ideas and arguments. External speakers are invited every week to present and engage with tutors and students. The aim is to position the multiple voices making possible a process of thinking in common, by definition a pedagogical practice different from the seminar or the lecture. The sessions are open to the public.
Interior Urbanism: Charles Rice
Please join us for a seminar with Charles Rice this Friday. It is a joint event with the Projective Cities and Media Practices and will take place at 10:00 in 32 FFB.
The presentation and the following dialogue with the audience will be based on Rice’s new book ‘Interior Urbanism: Architecture, John Portman and Downtown America,’ which he discussed a few weeks ago during his evening lecture at the Architectural Association.
