Event description

Description

John Thorp has been working in Leeds for over 50 years and was the last Civic Architect in the country.

Rightly regarded as the god-father of the city's architecture, his influence is everywhere from housing, the urban pattern of streets, galleries and most recently the award-winning Tower Works, Millennium Square, Leeds Arena and Granary Wharf. Possibly his most powerful legacy was to always champion design in the city and act as a cultural guardian of the city's built assets which he did in his gracious, un-assuming but effective style.

John will give a fascinating insight into his work which has transformed Leeds into the city we know today. no doubt touching on the now imfamous Leeds' pizza and petal drawing on the way.
