The headline programme for the second Festival of Architecture for Norfolk and Norwich (FANN-XI) is published this week, and Lucas Hickman Smith are fully involved.
The main programme of talks during the Festival (the ‘Perspectives’ events) are being ‘curated’ by Matt Wood of Lucas Hickman Smith, covering different aspects of architecture in Norfolk and the work of Norfolk’s architects. Projects at a wide range of scales will be discussed – from a single house to a new piece of city. Urban projects are included, but there is an emphasis on the rural context – reflecting Matt’s own particular interests (read more on his blog Ruralise) and with obvious relevance to the county.
Top-billing probably goes to Patty Hopkins of Hopkins Architects who will talk about the house they have designed for Living Architecture (the Long House in Cley), and Professor Alan Powers of Greenwich University and the Twentieth Century Society will talk about Norfolk’s very own Modern Movement heroes Tayler and Green. The full programme includes talks by London-based sustainability consultants and developers Beyond Green, Norwich-based Stirling Prize nominee Anthony Hudson and our very own Terry Hickman Smith, who will present our award-winning project, the Pennoyer Centre.
Lucas Hickman Smith will also be holding an Open Studio event as part of the Festival, and the Wood House (just up the road) will be open to the public as part of the Open Buildings event. Other highlights of the programme will be an architectural ‘Pecha Kucha Night‘, a series of architecture-related films at Cinema City and the annual Norwich Lecture at UEA, which this year wil be given by Philip Johnson of Populous, architects of the 2012 Olympic Stadium at Stratford.
The main FANN-XI programme runs from October 10th to 21st; for full https://lucasandwesternarchitects.co.uk/wp-admin/post-new.phpdetails visit the Festival website here.
