About this Event

Kevin Carmody will discuss recent themes in the studio’s work. These include working in the historic urban contexts including the City of London, being catalytic in urban strategies in order to come to terms with the conservation of urban fabric and the fragility of built heritage, and infrastructures that will support the future of the city. Kevin’s talk will explore projects for the Design Museum Ghent, Belgium, a temporary Museum for Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Hill House, a theatre pavilion on the Grossmarkt site in Hamburg, Germany, and the recently approved conversion of the Grade 2 listed building at 1-5 London Wall at Finsbury Circus.
