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.
The Charterhouse is delighted that this year's Thomas Sutton Lecture is an online presentation by eminent architect Eric Parry RA, MA (Cantab), MA (RCA), AADipl, RIBA. Eric Parry, with his practice, Eric Parry Architects, was commissioned back in 2014 to take on the major HLF-funded project of opening up the Charterhouse to the public for the first time, creating a new entrance, reception, museum and learning centre which complemented the ancient architecture here, and created a compelling and engaging visitor experience.
This is a sequel to Eric Parry's lecture given last year for the London Festival of Architecture, exploring the theme of 'Boundaries'. Eric Parry will focus on the intentions for the 'Revealing the Charterhouse' project, both social and architectural. One boundary that will be illustrated, with reference to the Charterhouse and other examples, will be the questions of responding to important historical contexts.
