Boundaries in time, place and material by Eric Parry RA: recorded lecture

Our 2020 Thomas Sutton Lecture by eminent architect Eric Parry RA, MA (Cantab), MA (RCA), AADipl, RIBA is now available online. 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.

This is a sequel to Eric Parry’s lecture given last year for the London Festival of Architecture, exploring the theme of ‘Boundaries’. Eric Parry will explore all the different boundaries dividing up London, both ancient and modern, tangible and abstract, and then 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. Access the link here (and a donation would be most welcome).
