Pushing Boundaries: LFA Small Talks

06 June 18:00 - 21:00
Organized by: RIBA London
Venue: RIBA
76 Portland Place

Join RIBA London for two informal nights of inspirational, short talks delivered by our London members.


Discover the many ways London’s architectural practices are breaking down boundaries with their revolutionary projects, digital innovation, progressive working methods and pioneering ways of envisaging London’s built environment.


Small Talk 1: Dr Julie Futcher RIBA - Pushing the Envelope Where does the boundary of the building end? Dr Julie Futcher discusses the many reasons why the boundaries of a building can no longer be considered to lie at the building envelope but extends into the wider environment.


Small Talk 2: Pedder & Scampton – How can good design can ease the physical and emotional boundaries that surround those with disabilities and autism? Specialists in housing & community spaces for those with autism, mental and physical disabilities, Pedder and Scampton will share their experience and discuss the many positive benefits of good design for their projectJun’s residents.


Small Talk 3: Maurizio Mucciola, PiM, V&A Dundee – boundaries between city and river.

As Project Architect on the V&A Dundee scheme by Kengo Kuma, Studio PiM will discuss how the project bridges the boundaries between the city of Dundee and the River Tay.


Small Talk 4: Alasdair Ben Dixon, Collective Works - Exploring the boundaries of flexible working in architecture.

Has the profession been slow to embrace flexible working? What are the limits of remote working in practice? Just how much work can you get done from a coffee shop? Who's providing opportunities for remote working?

The talk will be followed by a networking reception, where refreshments will be provided.
