‘Architecture & Travel’ talks as part of London Festival of Architecture 2019
As part of the London Festival of Architecture 2019 we’re hosting an evening of ‘Architecture & Travel’: presentations by four recent ADAM Architecture Travel Scholarship winners, who travelled overseas to conduct new research on their chosen topic. The event is taking place on Tuesday 25th June, from 6.30pm to 9pm at St Mary Aldermary, Watling Street EC4N 4SJ.
This event is free to attend, but places must be reserved via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/architecture-travel-talks-by-recent-travel-scholarship-winners-tickets-61026495892
Our four recent Travel Scholarship winners will each give a short, illustrated talk to share their research findings and tell the story of their travels, including the boundaries they came across, borders they crossed, constraints to their research posed by the country they were in and many often a stretch of their personal boundaries.
Over the past 15 years, a number of students and recent graduates have crossed many different boundaries to undertake original research on a wide variety of topics in different countries around the world as part of the ADAM Architecture Travel Scholarship.
The talks will be:
The Villa Suburbana and the Garden (Italy) by James Hills
Architecture as Sculpture – Rock-hewn Churches (Ethiopia) by Tarn Philipp
The Human Figure as Architectural Support (Sicily) by Chiara Hall
The Large Urban Developments of Pouillon (France and Algeria) by Jamie Hignett.
ADAM Architecture has always had a keen interest in research, exploring new ideas or developing existing ones, and the annual Travel Scholarship gives a student or recent graduate an opportunity to travel overseas to undertake a significant piece of original research, either pursuing a current research interest or exploring something new. In many cases this research has had a major influence on their career choices.
