A series of talks looking at style. In this first talk, Tim Abrahams, founder of Machine Books, gives an introduction to the series and defends High Tech.
High Tech architecture, developed by Norman Foster and Richard Rogers, embraced new technologies and celebrated a building's construction with exposed structures and surfaces. But did it fail to deliver the industrialised construction it promised, and simply repeat tired situations? Here, Tim Abrahams champions the style.
Style: In Defence of... is a series of talks at the Soane Museum examining the content and context of style. Across six talks, in partnership with Machine Books and Future Cities Project, leading experts defend a style, confronting us with new ideas for contemplation and critique. Talks are followed by an audience discussion.
Doors open at 18:45. We are in a Grade I listed, 19th-century building, so access isn't straightforward. If you require step-free access or extra assistance, please contact us in advance of your booking on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7405 2107.
