Event description

Description


The renowned author of Eyes of the Skin Juhani Pallasmaa will join the architect of Walmer Yard Peter Salter for an unmissable discussion on the multi-sensory experience of architecture.

Using the architecture of Salter’s Walmer Yard as a backdrop for the discussion, the two academics, both recognised for their architectural teaching and influential ideas, will use the theme of Walmer Yard’s second season – The Lesser Senses – to discuss the existential experience of architecture and its influence on our appreciation of spaces.


The discussion will be chaired by the writer and curator Vicky Richardson.
