Maltese veteran architect Richard England will be the next big guest of the Architecture Alive event happening in Malta this February.
Architecture Alive is a new initiative by local architectural and urban design firm studjurban, consisting of a series of talks held every three months. Each session is aimed at fostering discussion between world-renowned architects and anyone interested in the architecture sphere. Their iconic talks brings in experts from all across the globe to share their knowledge and expand learning opportunities.
Their next event will take place at Palazzo de Piro in Mdina on Saturday February 23rd 2019, and veteran architect Prof. Richard England will be delivering the talk on the day.
With a presentation titled ‘From the Spirit of Place to Places of Spirit,’ he will first be discussing his main influences at the start of his career, then move on to discuss the need of contextual approaches in architecture, and hence the importance of spirit of place.
This is a concept that Malta’s most recognised architect has recently been focusing on, as he promotes the importance of incorporating self-reflection and tranquility into the busy, overcrowded urban spaces that choke this country.
The Architecture Alive series kicked of last October with talks by Peter Lorenz, who is known as a tireless ambassador for the architect’s ethical responsibilities.
In November 2018, the world-renowned Scottish architect and lecturer Richard Murphy also hosted talks on his extensive knowledge on architecture and design.
Architecture Alive is hosted by studjurban and is supported by the Planning Authority, Kamra tal-Periti, Places:Design & Living magazine, and Marsovin. The next talk, From the Spirit of Place to Places of Spirit, will take place on Saturday February 23rd at 18:30 and will be held at Palazzo de Piro.
The tickets for the event will be out soon.
