In the first talk in this series, Amin Taha and Pierre Bidaud will discuss their experience of working with natural stone, focusing on the creation of 15 Clerkenwell Close in particular. This seven storey building, completed in 2017, utilises quarry-finished limestone columns and lintels to form a structural stone facade. Amin and Pierre will discuss how craft expertise is incorporated within an architectural design process, and the practical challenges involved in working collaboratively with structural stone.

Amin Taha was born in Berlin, moving to London where now practices architecture as one of the founding partners of Groupwork. The practice’s projects have been widely published and are characterised as narrative and tectonically driven. Amin has taught and still writes on architecture, is on RIBA National and International Awards committee and advises pension funds on sustainable investments.

Pierre Bidaud has been a stonemason for 30 years. He left France for England in 1998 working in restoration. He developed an interest in contemporary architecture and in 2005 began to work on new projects. After a meeting in 2009, he embarked on the research and development of a new method of mineral construction. For 10 years he has worked at the Stonemasonry Company, designing stone stairs and structures using techniques such as post tensioning, and discreet steel reinforcement.
