Raymond Quek from Norwich University of the Arts, Architecture Course Leader is going to discuss the materials and construction of modern tropical architecture. Modern Architecture and the tropical climate has had a slow relationship, largely stemming from the difficulty of modernising vernacular practices that have adapted to climate over centuries, and the slow emergence of modern sensibilities from within the territories. Exploring the architecture from Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaya, this lecture reviews the issues in recent work, and the question of tropicality and time.
