Description

Cass Research Seminar: : Threats and opportunities for self-authorship in urban space

6.30pm – 8pm Monday 12th March 2018

Calcutta House, GSG15A

The Architecture of Autonomy: Threats and opportunities for self-authorship in urban space with Ben Colburn (Department of Philosophy, Glasgow University) and Jane Clossick (Cass Cities).

The two presentations at this week's Cass Research Seminar examine the relationship between architecture and autonomy through the example of workspace on and around the Old Kent Road. Ben Colburn is head of philosophy at the University of Glasgow. He is a moral and political philosopher, working on the ideal of autonomy and its relationship with individual responsibility and state neutrality. Jane is the Lecturer in Urban Design at The Cass, and is head of MA Architecture and Urbanism. She explores urban depth, London industrial accommodation and high streets with the Cass Cities team.
