TALK: Architecture and Instituting
Event type: 
Wednesday, September 19, 2018 - 19:00 to 20:00

Assemble’s Adam Willis and Paloma Strelitz in conversation with The Guardian's architecture and design critic, Oliver Wainwright

The building that houses Goldsmiths CCA is designed by multi-disciplinary collective Assemble. Grafted onto, and radically altering, a Victorian bath house, Goldsmiths CCA exemplifies Assemble's vision for a public art gallery; one that preserves residual traces, through texture, detail, and colour, whilst opening up the building to porosity and flow. With this event we consider how architects confront the challenge of instituting, and project forwards to speculate as to what kind of possible institutions could be articulated through approaches to the built environment. Can museum architecture create new paradigms of experience, or even push artistic production itself in new directions?
