Between Living Time and Rocky Space

Lecture Description:
Two generations ago, architects had a real job to do, rebuilding the cities shattered by war. Now the grandchildren of those utopians have a different job, which is to rescue a world that is being turned by the media, the money and the machines into a replica of itself. This talk is a rehearsal for the publication of CIRCA Press of Paul Shepheard’s book, Buildings: Between Living Time and Rocky Space. It will examine the motives and methods we might use to discuss this huge, complicated and elusive subject, starting with the question “Why write about buildings?”
Multistory is a student and alumni led guest lecture programme series at Canterbury School of Architecture, University for the Creative Arts that seeks to invite architects, designers, writers, curators, photographers and artists to speak about their work.
