Dealing with it: Lecture with Tony Fretton
18:00 – 19:30
Arkitektur- og designhøgskolen i Oslo, Maridalsveien 29, Oslo
Organiser: Oslo School of Architecture and Design
The lecture series Dealing with it expand on the theme of the Dealing with it workshop, by inviting practitioners and academics to present a spectrum of approaches and attitudes towards the existing environment.
The talks will take stock of the modes of practice, cultural ambitions, intellectual frameworks, and political commitments that go beyond keeping or letting to propose alternative ways of dealing with it.
Tony Fretton Architects was founded in 1982 and is now headed by partners Tony Fretton and James McKinney. Their work ranges from embassies, government and commercial offices, high quality residential to buildings for arts and culture. The buildings completed by the practice in London for the Lisson Gallery in 1986 and 1992 continue to be internationally recognised as exemplary spaces for art, for the architectural experiences they offer and for their social engagement with the surrounding city. The three aspects - exemplary functioning, rewarding experience and productive engagement with the locale - are the underlying motifs in all the subsequent work. More info.
