Join contemporary artist Grayson Perry and architect Charles Holland to discuss the design and production of A House for Essex, a seminal building and art piece by FAT Architecture and Grayson Perry for Alain de Botton’s Living Architecture company.
A House for Essex is designed as a contemporary interpretation of the wayside or pilgrimage chapel. The form and decoration of the house explores the historic and contemporary character of Essex. It is also a commemoration of Julie Cope, a fictional ‘Essex everywoman’ created by Perry. The exterior is clad in 2,300 deep olive green and white ceramic tiles, designed by Perry, that depict totems of Julie’s life.
