MULTISTORY* Guest Lecture
Piers Taylor 06 Feb

Piers Taylor is an architect and founder of Invisible Studio and the annual Studio in the Woods Workshop. He will talk about 20 years of retreat from mainstream architectural practice and how he has developed a mode of practice from a working 100 acre woodland with a network of collaborators internationally, none of whom are bound by the confines of flat screen plan-of-work cultures. He will also talk about how ‘making' with amateurs and negotiating the contingencies that emerge from real-time interactions have opened a new avenue for him within the most orthodox of professions.


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.
