Held annually, the NAA invites a leading architect, often a winner of a RIBA Gold Medal or the Stirling Prize, to talk about their work.
The Norwich Lecture takes place every Autumn at the University of East Anglia, most recently within the multi award winning Enterprise Centre. The location is apt, as the university has a long tradition of commissioning exciting high quality buildings and architecture.
The 2017 Lecture will be given by Peter St John, partner at Caruso St John Architects, who have acquired a reputation for projects in the cultural sector. Peter founded Caruso St John in 1990 with Adam Caruso and the practice won the international competition for the New Art Gallery Walsall in 1995. Since then, they have have acquired a reputation for projects in the cultural sector, including Nottingham Contemporary and the Millbank project for Tate Britain. The practice won the Stirling prize in 2016 for their Newport Street Gallery in Vauxhall for Damien Hirst. The practice has offices in London and Zurich and is European in its outlook, with current commissions in Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, France and Sweden. Recently completed buildings include the 29,000m2 Lycée Hotelier de Lille, and the 23,000m2 head office for the Bremer Landesbank in Bremen.
The event will take place on Thursday 2nd November, starting at 7.00pm, and although attendance is free, places must be booked in advance. Contact Corrina Theobald at Fielden + Mawson to book or for further information.
