Keith Williams returns to the West Country to give a lecture on his firm’s work at the invitation of Plymouth Architecture Design Society at 17.30 on Friday 3 March.
The theme of the lecture will be Keith Williams : Architecture of the Specific, sharing the title with the Monograph on Keith’s work. He will examine the themes and principles that have governed his firm’s design ethos, competition entries and realised buildings since its foundation in 2001. Keith will examine elements of architectural history setting the context for discussion on his major European buildings and will describe underlying principles such as light, form, space and materiality; elements that for him represent the essence of architecture. He will also talk of his long held belief in the power of the generative sketch and sketch model, elements which he believes are the key tools in the architect’s armoury, and which determine the direction of all the firm’s projects.
This will be the third in a series of lectures that Keith has given at the University over the past decade.
The Lecture will take place in
Room 601, The Roland Levinsky Building
School of Architecture, Design & Environment
Faculty of Arts and Humanities
