A one day conference convened by Professor Lesley Millar, Director of the International Textile Research Centre, Professor Simon Olding, Director of the Crafts Study Centre, and Allan Atlee, Head of the Canterbury School of Architecture, University for the Creative Arts The conference will explore how works of craft engage with modern and contemporary architecture through the interiors and exteriors of buildings and the spaces between buildings. It will enable a reflection on the ways that architecture makes demands of craft and its makers, or even rejects craft. The keynote lectures will be given by the Dutch designer Petra Blaisse and the architect and academic Piers Taylor.
The conference speakers include:
Richard Kindersley, Jo McCallum, Christopher Tipping, Philip Koomen. Closing remarks will be by the Professor of Architecture at the University for the Creative Arts, with a welcome by Professor Bashir Makhoul, Vice Chancellor.
The conference is supported by the Journal of Modern Craft, The Built Environment Trust and by the Building Centre.
