What do architects do when they design?
Why do things look the way they do?
Charles Holland will present a series of architectural projects exploring shared themes to do with architectural style, symbolism and language. The lecture will explore the way in which these projects emerge from a mix of common themes, personal obsessions, practical needs and individual circumstance. Charles Holland is an architect, teacher and writer. He is the principal of Charles Holland Architects (CHA), a multi-disciplinary design practice based in the UK and is Professor of Architecture at the University of Brighton. CHA’s work covers architecture, art, teaching and research and ranges in scale from the urban masterplan to the domestic interior. He is a former director of FAT (Fashion Architecture Taste) and a co-founder of Ordinary Architecture. His work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, the Royal Academy of Art, the RIBA and the Victoria and Albert Museum. While at FAT, he was the director in charge of A House For Essex, the practice’s creative collaborative project with the artist Grayson Perry. He writes and lectures about architecture and the work of his practice regularly and contributes to numerous magazines and journals.
