In the first lecture in the Architecture Centre’s 20th anniversary programme, People and Places, Charlotte Skene Catling considers the foundations of architecture and place making.
Through a detailed presentation of Flint House, winner of the 2015 RIBA House of the Year award, she will demonstrate her practice’s attitude to core themes that include the Ground, Settlement, Habitat and Substance.
Described by the judges as “a marvel of geological evolution and construction, Flint House is a celebration of location, material and architectural design at its best. Set in the flint-layered fields of the Rothschild’s estate at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire, the building rises from the ground as dark, fashioned flint and slowly changes in construction and texture until its refined white chalk blocks disappear into the sky.”
This is an Architecture Centre event in partnership with the Bristol and Bath branch of RIBA.
