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.
