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.
We open Architecture Awards Week 2020 by presenting Cristina Iglesias with the Royal Academy Architecture Prize. Then, you’ll discover the winner of the Royal Academy Dorfman Award who will be announced and presented with their award following the jury’s final deliberation.
Cristina Iglesias will then present a celebratory lecture, exploring her work and its connections to architecture followed by a half-hour conversation with the chair of this year’s jury, Norman Foster RA. Ranging from gallery spaces to city squares, their conversation will chart the important public aspect of Iglesias’s work. It will also look into her collaborations with architects; asking what she learnt from them and in turn what they learnt from her.
Following the lecture and conversation there will be 10 minutes for the audience to ask questions.
Sir Norman Foster RA is a British architect known for his innovative, stylish structural designs, as seen with edifices like Berlin’s Reichstag, New York City’s Hearst Tower and London’s City Hall.
Cristina Iglesias is a Spanish installation artist and sculptor based in Torrelodones, Madrid. She works with materials including steel, water, glass, bronze, bamboo and straw to offer a poetic redefining of space. She champions an approach that encourages and evokes unique modes of engagement, feelings and perception of space.
