As part of the London Festival of Architecture programme, Davide Deriu (Director of Research and MA Architecture course leader) will be chairing a panel on Knowledge Territories at the Italian Cultural Institute on the 4th June.
The authors of a recent book about the architecture of higher education will discuss (in English!) university buildings and the politics they reflect.
The event will consider how university architecture should respond to the new conditions under which higher education operates, as well as how architecture may be conceived as central to a substantial contemporary redefinition of higher education comparable to that of 1968, when Joseph Rykwert described the new universities of the time as archetypes of combined urban and educational values for their age.
They will be joined in conversation by Dr Clare Melhuish, Director of the UCL Urban Laboratory.
When: 4th June 2018, 19:00-20:30
Where: Italian Cultural Institute, 39 Belgrave Square, SW1X 8NX
