TALK: A Place Apart


Saturday 12 September 2020

Two panel discussions with leading architects for our second architecture symposium, which this year takes Elisabeth Frink’s reconstructed Woolland Studio – and her creative environment as the backdrop. A Place Apart (started 10:30am) and A Place Together (started 2pm), which recall Frink’s statement about her studio and solitary practice and a contrasting talk about how collective spaces need to be reimagined and how architecture is adapting to a post Covid-19 society.

10:30 – Introduction

Renowned architect Mike Stiff of Stiff + Trevillion looked at public vs private in the context of our post-Covid world.

11 – 12:30pm – A Place Apart

Fergus Feilden, Christina Seilern, Jessica Reynolds and Philip Gumuchdjian. Chaired by Roger Zogolovitch.

‘A Place Apart’ is taken from a quote by Elisabeth Frink in relation to her studio, and the title of the studio exhibition, and was a panel discussion that examined the private realm and role of architecture in a post-covid 19 society. Each panelist spoke for 10 minutes on a specific project before joining the discussion chaired by Roger Zogolovitch.
