Lucas Hickman Smith’s Matt Wood gave a short talk last night for artists’ group Kiln, inspired by historian Nikolaus Pevsner’s controversial observation that Lincoln Cathedral is a work of architecture, whereas a humble bike-shed is merely a building.

Matt’s talk explored the difference of approach needed when designing large glamorous buildings such as art galleries (modern-day ‘cathedrals’) and more modest, ubiquitous buildings such as houses, and highlighted some similarities and differences between architecture and the other ‘fine’ arts. The slides for Matt’s talk can be downloaded here. (link)
