A Galaxy of Starchitects - Part 2 Prof. Clive Binfield Tuesday 25 September 2018

Architects such as Richard Rogers, Norman Foster, Terry Farrell, Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, Renzo Piano, I.M.Pei, Jean Nouvel and Santiago Calatrava have become international stars or ‘starchitects’. With huge cosmopolitan practices, their creations are hailed as iconic and cutting-edge, but what about the quality? Who was the first starchitect – Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright? Are these star personalities about to disappear into team anonymity?

There will be as usual 3 lectures that will cover a much wider scope than Professor Binfield's lecture last year.

Clyde Binfield is a graduate of Cambridge University and later became a Professor of History at the University of Sheffield. He has returned to some of his first and last loves – buildings, their creators and their settings.
