BIG + SMALL


Lecturer's Abstract 

BIG is engaged with projects both large and small in locations all over the world. The lecture will reflect on a diversity of projects, from the scale of a summer pavilion to the large, urban-scale works for which the practice is best. The projects are characterised by the answer to the basic architectural themes of form, function, site, circulation, direction, light, air and materials. At various scales, from small to large, these projects are based on a detailed engagement with spatial experience and structure, architectural materials and the surrounding context, and broader issues in society – an ongoing challenge unfettered by conventional ideas.
