MULTISTORY* Guest Lecture
LONDONON Thurs 21 Nov


Founded in 2017, Londonon is a rolling research and residency programme in cities around the globe run by collaborating London-based architects and creatives. The collective is currently composed of 6 individual practices who pool together resources and collaborate towards developing an outward- looking understanding on various conditions both in London and globally. The practices involved are Mae, Haptic Architects, Coffey Architects, Morris + Co., Turner Works and Gortt Scott.

In February 2019, Londonon travelled to Paris embarking on a field trip to celebrate, observe, investigate, catalogue and question humanity’s relationship with food. A subsequent contribution to Oslo Architecture Triennale reflected on this trip, taking a detailed look at the remarkable impact that the lifecycle of food has on the shaping of our culture, geography and the urban grain of cities worldwide. This lecture will describe the journey which took the collective from London to Oslo (via Paris) - from the research carried out in Paris, to developing an installation which would exhibit a forensic understanding of food and fabrication processes , this will be punctuated with all the thinking , questioning, planning which occurred in between.


MULTISTORY* is a student and alumni led guest lecture programme series at Canterbury School of Architecture, University for the Creative Arts, seeking to invite architects, designers, writers, curators, photographers and artists to speak about their work.

This year, under new curatorship, we have chosen the theme of Futures: Industry to fuel discussion on how the profession is adapting and innovating to cope with changes in climate,
society, and procurement. We aim to ask ‘what kind of diversifications are emerging, growing and changing the wider industry, and how can we participate?’

MULTISTORY* lectures run from 1800 – 1900 on Thursday evenings in the Architecture Foyer at UCA Canterbury, unless otherwise stated. Details for each event are posted here in advance. Follow us on twitter to keep up to date on additions to the programme.

MULTISTORY* is free and open to all.
