Lecture Series | Retrouvius

  • Adam House Lecture Theatre

This week EUSAS welcomes Adam Hills & Maria Speake.

http://www.retrouvius.com/home

“At the heart of Retrouvius is the belief that good materials and well-made things are precious; whether quarried stone or a piece of expert joinery, these objects were hard won and have an intrinsic value that argues for them to be re-conditioned and intelligently re-used.”[Retrouvius]
This London-based design team are involved in a wide range of design projects from the domestic to the commercial. All are grasped with skills in architectural, interior and product design and place their focus on incorporating and salvaging materials.

Maria Speake and Adam Hills studied at Glasgow School of Art and went on to set up Retrouvius in 1993 and then moved to London in 1997. Initially specialising in salvaged architectural antiques, their design shop and studio is fuelled by their passion for re-using old materials in bold ways through very contemporary and creative interventions.

DKA has built a reputation for the quality of its design, winning World Interior of the Year in 2013 and RIBA, D&AD, Designs of the Year, New London and Condé Nast awards in 2012. In 2010 the practice was named 'One-Off House Architect of the Year' and in 2009 'Young Architect of the Year'

This week EUSAS is welcomes Sophie Goldhill and David Liddicoat fromLiddicoat & Goldhill

http://www.liddicoatgoldhill.com/

Founded in 2011, the studio’s work explores the visceral experience of Architecture. They combine a collaborative Agile design management system with an artisanal approach to making. 

Named as one of Wallpaper* Magazine’s ‘Future 30’, the practice was shortlisted for Building Design 2017 One-Off House Architect of the Year and the studio’s work has been widely exhibited and published in the UK and abroad with several of their models selected for the architecture room of the Royal Academy of Arts.

Shortlisted in 2012 for the AJ Emerging Woman Architect of the Year Award, Sophie combines Conservation specialism with experience of on-site delivery of construction projects. Her architectural imagination was sparked through painting at the Slade school of fine art. Exhibited at Tate Britain, her work explored the materiality of industrial structures.

David combines material experimentation with knowledge of construction. He is involved with every project in the studio where he is continuously refining the design of simple and elegant assembly details. This is evident in the multi award winning Ancient Party Barn.

What better way to kick of a year of EUSAS lectures than to look for inspiration from within: EUSAS proudly presents a pair of lectures by our very own committee members Victoria Meadows and Adam McFall. 

T. Bowhill Gibson Travelling Scholarship recipient Adam McFall will lead a talk titled ‘Vancouver: Two Ways’ which offers two urban ‘readings’ of the city of Vancouver, directly influenced by his research trip devoted to the study of ‘Vancouverism’, an emerging urban planning phenomenon. The talk will span topics such as film, gold bullion, planning policy and postcards, and offers a personal interpretation of a place, foregrounded by academic research. 

Victoria Meadows, part of a design team responsible for the award winning entry to ARCHMEDIUM’s ‘San Juan Cruise Hub Competition’ (2015), will talk about her team’s design and the experience of working on ‘La Cinta Del Mar: The Ribbon of the Sea’.

Join us at 18:30 (Doors open at 18:00), Adam House Lecture Theatre, and don't forget to pick up a complimentary beverage of your choice on the way in.

Not only is it a fun way to get to know your way around, but you'll also get to know your fellow architects (who you will be spending a lot of time with in the coming months) and also be in with a chance of winning some prizes!

Players will be split into teams of roughly 5 freshers accompanied by 1-2 senior students who will help you make your way around the city, and capture the best images. Post your photos with a eusas hashtag to be confirmed on the day, and all the images will be judged in categories, with prizes given out later in the day.

Good luck! (And remember to bring a fully charged phone!)
