Stirling prize winner and alumnus Michael Wilford will be the last guest in our popular Alumni Lecture Series!
Composition and character are primary aspects of the art of architecture. To demonstrate how these aspects have influenced and supported both finished buildings and competition designs, renowned architect Michael Wilford will describe his architectural objectives and the strategies he uses to achieve them.
There will be time for the audience to ask questions of the speakers both during the Q&A and informally after the event with refreshments and networking.
