Reputations Live: Stephen Parnell on Alison and Peter Smithson

Regular price £10.00

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 fifth talk of the series, Stephen Parnell, architect, critic and Programme Director at Newcastle University’s School of Architecture, presents Alison and Peter Smithson. For a couple for whom ordinariness was such an important motif, they were anything but. The Smithsons’ reputation rests on a small number of ordinary buildings and an extensive archive of extraordinarily well-documented architectural thinking, writing and teaching.

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 admin@soane.org.uk or 020 7405 2107.
