Twentieth Century Architect – John Madin

I went along with my video camera to the launch of Alan Clawley’s book dedicated to the work of Birmingham Architect John Madin. I also live blogged some of the event via MADE’s website.

The book is available for purchase through RIBA Bookshop and Amazon

Live Blog: Talking Cities

This Thursday (15th April), I’ll be live blogging on behalf of MADE from the next lecture in the Talking Cities Series held at Birmingham Conservatoire at 6.15pm.

Obviously we’d love you to come to the Conservatoire in person and enjoy some networking opportunities with other likeminded folk, but if you can’t make it, then be sure to follow the live blog which will appear here just as soon as we go live (or if, like me, you are particularly forgetful, you can sign up for a reminder). If you have a question, either send it via MADE’s twitter account, or comment directly via the blog.

Talking Cities: Learning Cities
Prof John Worthington, Building Futures
Co-founder of DEGW, chair of CABE’s Building Futures, Deputy Chair for Regeneration
John Worthington will speak on Learning Cities and will refer to his pioneering methods of adapting urban and space planning techniques to meet the needs of the emerging knowledge economy. John is also Visiting Professor at both University of Sheffield and Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, and co-author of the forthcoming new edition of Managing the Brief for Better Design.

This event is led by MADE and CUDOS, and is supported by RIBA West Midlands, CABE, Arts Council England and Birmingham Architectural Association.

Full details of the event can be found on the events page of MADE’s website.
