About the talk

There are so many different ways of being an architect. Everyone will have to decide who to work for and what projects are going to be meaningful to their own trajectory in the profession. Drawing on a career spanning three recessions, Cany will revisit some of the clients and projects which have been most challenging. The most exciting design propositions and built projects demand an initial shared vision strong enough to withstand the vagaries of project management and delivery. While many such architectural visions rely on a geometrical concepts Ash Sakula Architects work with 'inhabited visions' from the first sketches to places teeming with life.

There will be time for the audience to ask questions of the speaker both during the Q&A and informally after the event with refreshments and networking.
