Tue, March 21, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM GMT
How are buildings portrayed in our age of declining newsprint, and ascending digital media, with its instantaneous and incessant visual stimulation? Is the representation of architecture now less critical, to be replaced with mood-board approach and driven by shareability?
The panel discussion, chaired by Edwin Heathcote, will include Catherine Slessor and Oliver Wainwright. The event is part of a new series on Art and Architecture curated by Edwin Heathcote and hosted by Second Home in East London.
