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.
How can innovative ideas from outside the field of architecture inform practise? For the first RIBA Book Club event of 2020, three influential architects – Angela Dapper of Grimshaw, Tomas Millar of Millar + Howard Workshop and Carl Turner of Carl Turner Architects – will be talking about how a particular thought leadership book has moved and inspired them to shift the way they think about and engage with work.
Tomas Millar will be discussing 'Creativity, Inc' by Ed Catmall, founder of Pixar, for its ‘perspective of another industry that is both technical and creative in equal measure’, while well-known architect entrepreneur Carl Turner will be talking about 'The One Thing', highlighting how it changed his studio’s approach to systemisation and focus.
Grimshaw principal and diversity champion, Angela Dapper, will be highlighting 'Women and Power: A Manifesto' by Mary Beard, which tests cultural assumptions about women's relationship with power across history.
