'Building Stories' with multi award winning Richard Jobson, founding Director of Design Engine Architects.

The lecture will focus on the narrative behind buildings, whose lives they touch, the hands that crafted them and the people who conceived them.

"Architecture is concerned in its most elemental sense with the interaction of people.  Building above all else provide the theatre for human engagement in all of the many and diverse forms that this entails.  Claude Levi-Strauss gave central importance to the role of myth - a world view based on a traditional story, and a term deriving from the ancient Greek 'mythos', that simply means story..." (Taken from the recently published Building Stories written in collaboration with the late Martin Peace.

There are spaces available, so you are welcome to come to the Examination Schools by 4.30pm for the lecture.
