TALK: A Place Together
Saturday 12 September 2020
Two panel discussions with leading architects for our second architecture symposium, which this year takes Elisabeth Frink’s reconstructed Woolland Studio – and her creative environment as the backdrop. A Place Apart (started 10:30am) and A Place Together (started 2pm), the closing discussion of our Festival which asked the question: when and how we will get back together. Examining the roles of public spaces in a post-covid society. ‘A Place Together’ examined the future of the city centre. Each panellist spoke for 10 minutes on a specific project before joining the discussion chaired by Peter Clegg.
The panelists were Niall McLaughlin, Mark Merer, Piers Taylor and Jenny Jones. Chaired by Peter Clegg.
‘A Place Together’ is adapted from a quote by Elisabeth Frink in relation to her studio and is a panel discussion that will examine the public realm and role of architecture in a post-Covid 19 society. Each panellist spoke for 10 minutes on a specific project before joining the discussion chaired by Peter Clegg.
