Concrete Elegance: Texture and Context

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 12th Jun 2018

This evening's lecture features two buildings where the design and use of concrete is strongly influenced by the context of their location.

Templeman Library, by Penoyre & Prasad Architects and structural engineers Price & Myers, is the refurbishment and extension to an existing brutalist building, using exposed cast in-situ concrete and external architectural precast concrete fins. The Yorkshire Sculpture Park Visitor Centre, by Feilden Fowles Architects and engineersHRW, employs heavily textured and layered concrete walls to reflect its emergence from the earth in this rural setting.

Each project will be presented by their architect and structural engineering team, sharing design development and their construction experiences of creating fine examples of contemporary concrete architecture.
