Welcome to the Boston Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
William Horgan RIBA from Grimshaw will describe the process of envisioning and creating the Eden Project in Cornwall (UK) which opened in 2001. Eden's remarkable structures demonstrate an unprecedented use of ETFE cladding as a novel response to challenging terrain conditions.
Horgan is a deep and innovative thinker who loves to design. He brings to his projects conceptual ideas and technical solutions often influenced by precedents found in both the natural and the man-made worlds, and guided by an enduring interest in architectural history and design theory. He joined Grimshaw in London in 1995, moved to their New York office in 2003, and became a Partner in 2010.
The Eden Project is featured in detail in the current BSA Space exhibition, The New Inflatable Moment, on view at BSA Space through September 30, 2017.
