Regular price £10.00

Loading schedule...

For the most part, architectural history in Britain is the story of gradual change and evolution, of long term trends that give meaning to events as they unfold, even moments of apparent crescendo and climax. From time to time, however, there comes a tipping point when old certainties are overturned, new ideas break free and the clock of history is reset: we call this a Year Zero.

In the fourth talk of the series, Reinier de Graaf, partner at OMA, looks at the financial collapse of 2008.

Reinier de Graaf is a Dutch architect and writer. He is a partner in the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), where he leads projects in Europe, Russia and the Middle East. Reinier is the co-founder of OMA’s think-tank AMO and Sir Arthur Marshall Visiting Professor of Urban Design at the Department of Architecture of the University of Cambridge. He is the author of the book Four Walls and a Roof: The Complex Nature of a Simple Profession.

About the series

This series, organised in partnership with Machine Books, invites writers, critics, historians and architects to identify and reflect on a single Year Zero – when the trajectories of architectural and broader history connect and coincide and the status quo is changed forever. Each speaker has written a complimentary essay, available to purchase as an ebook, discussing their own Year Zero.
