Event description

Description

The RSA is delighted to announce that Sir David Chipperfield will present this year’s event. Sir David is the first British architect to do so, and has a truly international practice, with buildings in Japan, Germany, Mexico, Korea and elsewhere, as well as in the UK. (His Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield has recently been recognised as one of the country’s best.) In an interview, which will be published and available at the event, he talks about how he started, the problems that international investment creates in cities, and how to help people like modern architecture.

Now in its fourth year, the annual Royal Scottish Academy Metzstein Architecture Discourse was founded in 2014 in memory of Isi Metzstein (1928 – 2012), partner of the Glasgow practice of Gillespie Kidd and Coia, Professor of Architecture at the University of Edinburgh and Treasurer of the RSA. The proposition was simple: to bring to Scotland the world’s best architects and thinkers and to invite them to give a discourse. Isi Metzstein was not just a remarkable architect and teacher he was perhaps for generations of students and architects who knew him above all an astonishing polemicist. Isi believed that architecture was its own discipline and subject to a logical and penetrating analysis. The inaugral Discourser in 2014 was Alvaro Siza from Portugal, followed in 2015 by Glenn Murcutt from Australia and in 2016, Peter Zumthor from Switzerland.

The RSA is indebted to the continuing support of the Scottish Governement.
