Thursday 16 January, 6.30pm

Sir Richard MacCormac RA, architect and urban designer, will be speaking on Space, Culture and Cities on Thursday 16 January at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

Richard MacCormac has influenced the public debate on art and the built environment in the UK for over 30 years. This illustrated lecture will build on his ideas on the interactions between public space, culture and the design of cities with reference to his architectural and urban projects.

MacCormac has taught and lectured widely, has published articles on urban design and architectural theory and is regularly invited to be an assessor of architectural competitions. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Royal Academician. His architectural work has been awarded many prizes, including the Millennium Building of the Year Award by the RFAC Trust/ BSkyB for Southwark Station, Jubilee Line Extension, and the RIBA Regional Award 1997 for his work on Trinity College, Cambridge. 

Professor Richard Sennett, LSE, will chair the event, which is free and open to all. No ticket is required.
