Coronavirus: Events may be cancelled and venues closed at short notice, you are advised to check on their websites before making a trip.

Alison Brooks, principal and creative director of Alison Brooks Architects will discuss the role of archetype as a critical physical and conceptual framework for human experience, and how she transforms these models into an experimental, culturally specific architecture.

She will discuss her seminal new Quadrangle for Exeter College, Oxford; a competition-winning scheme for York Castle Museum; a new Maggie’s Centre in Somerset; and a private house in Hampstead.

Each of these projects engages in a dialogue with historic forms, materials and patterns in search of a contemporary iconography.
