Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Join us for a lecture by architect David Kohn, where he discusses sculpture and it relationship to architecture.
Since establishing his practice in 2007, architect David Kohn has collaborated regularly with artists and sculptors. For the next lecture in the Bodies of Thought series, curated by Vicky Richardson in partnership with the London School of Architecture, Kohn discusses sculpture and its relationship to architecture. With reference to his latest projects, including the refurbishment of the ICA and a new campus for New College, Oxford, he will explore figurative sculpture in classical architecture and the relationships between sculpture, landscape and architecture explored in post-war land art.
Born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1972, David Kohn studied architecture at the University of Cambridge and Columbia University, New York. His practice recently completed the new Photography Centre at the V&A and won an international competition to design an apartment building in Berlin. The practice has collaborated with artists on past and ongoing projects including Fiona Banner, Simon Fujiwara and Pablo Bronstein.
