Eric Parry RA: Boundaries in time, place and material
We are delighted to host a talk by eminent architect Eric Parry RA, MA (Cantab), MA (RCA), AADipl, RIBA in association with the London Festival of Architecture. Eric Parry, with his practice, Eric Parry Architects, was commissioned back in 2014 to take on the major HLF-funded project of opening up the Charterhouse to the public for the first time, creating a new entrance, reception, museum and learning centre which complemented the ancient architecture here, and created a compelling and engaging visitor experience.
Exploring this year’s theme of ‘Boundaries’, Eric Parry will focus on the intentions for the ‘Revealing the Charterhouse’ project, both social and architectural. One boundary that will be illustrated, with reference to the Charterhouse and other examples, will be the questions of responding to important historical contexts.
