ACAN’s Circular Series: Stage 8, Deconstruction

We’ll be summing up the Circular Series, inviting you to discuss the big ideas that the series has raised, and closing the loop by interrogating a proposed new RIBA Stage: 8 - Deconstruction.

Alongside other experts from the world of deconstruction and re-use, David Cheshire, author of Building Revolutions will tackle some of the big themes of the series. Dave Bennick, Director of the Building Deconstruction Institute, will introduce his approach to taking buildings apart (and sharing his advice for architects). You’ll have the chance to discuss directly with speakers from previous events, and the evening will wrap up with a panel discussion chaired by Duncan Baker Brown.
