London, United Kingdom
Peter St John presents a lecture on the work of James Stirling, as part of Second Floor, a new series in partnership with Metropolitan Architecture Student Society (MASS) at London Met. The series includes lectures by each of the school's unit tutors, in which they present the work of an architect that has influenced their practice.
In the hour-long lecture, St John explores Stirling's 'black book' as his first introduction to the architect, as well as his projects, the Cambridge University History Faculty, the headquarters for Dorman Long Steel and the Olivetti Training Centre.
The lecture was recorded by the Architecture Foundation.
Peter St John's London Met Unit will investigate the theme of Second Life. The term comes from the artist and social activist Theaster Gates, who states that almost everything can be reused. This is evident in his work which has involved collating discarded objects and materials, as well as salvaging and refurbishing whole buildings.
Students will look at the question of how to renew buildings; how construction can be less energy-demanding and creating systems where buildings are indivisible components in a regenerating ecological system.
