Event Details

We are pleased to announce the launch of

Birkbeck's Architecture, Space and Society Centre

with Jeremy Till, Central Saint Martins

speaking about 'Thick Time'


Followed by a drinks reception


'Thick Time'

This lecture will present a reading of space and time that Jeremy Till has developed in his writings. Starting with the premise that architects tend to situate their work out of time in an effort to shake off the terrors of time, the lecture will propose an alternative model. Thick time both critically gathers the past and projects the future, allowing each to loop into the other. The result is an understanding of architecture as a dynamic and contingent act.


Jeremy Till is an architect, educator and writer. He is Head of Central Saint Martins, widely considered one of the world’s leading centres for art and design education, and Pro Vice-Chancellor, University of the Arts London. His extensive written work includes the books Flexible Housing, Architecture Depends and Spatial Agency, all three of which won the RIBA President’s Award for Research. His teaching and research concentrates on the social and political aspects of architecture and spatial production. As an architect, he worked with Sarah Wigglesworth Architects on their pioneering building, 9 Stock Orchard Street, recently flagged by the Architects Journal as the most influential house of a generation. He curated the UK Pavilion at the 2006 Venice Architecture Biennale and also at the 2013 Shenzhen Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism.

Architecture, Space and Society Centre

The Architecture, Space and Society Centre provides a focus for the research activities taking place within Birkbeck and beyond in the area of architectural, design and landscape history.

By bringing together scholars from early and modern periods with academics from other disciplines, curators and and heritage experts, it also acts as a forum for those with an interest in the built environment and space more generally.
