Join us for the second instalment of Reputations Live, presenting architecture’s biggest influencers and agitators from The Architectural Review's Reputations series.

In the sixth and final talk of the series, Rowan Moore, architecture critic at The Guardian and author of Why We Build, presents Lina Bo Bardi. The Brazilian Modernist’s work is celebrated for its punchy, honest concern for social good. Bo Bardi was a political activist, designer of furniture, temporary exhibitions and theatre sets, as well as an architect and each activity extended and informed the other. 

In partnership with The Architectural Review, the second series of Reputations Live once again explores the most prominent, prolific and notorious architects from Sir John Soane’s day to our present age. In a six part series hosted at the Soane Museum, writers, critics and practitioners champion their chosen architects for a live audience.

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 or 020 7405 2107.
