Sheila O'Donnell: Lecture in London 22.10.2019

In collaboration with the Architects’ Journal, Sheila O’Donnell will be giving a free public lecture on 22nd October at the Roca London Gallery, focusing on the practice’s scheme to extend Liverpool University’s School of Architecture, which we won this summer. She will also be speaking about the work of her practice over the last 30 years.

Throughout our 30 years in practice we have worked on the re-use and transformation of existing buildings. In this lecture I will talk about our attitude to re-use with reference to a number of built projects, and focusing mainly on our recently won project for the School of Architecture in Liverpool. The school currently occupies two adjoining, but not very well connected, buildings from the19th and 20th centuries. Our proposal combines the Georgian houses, the Reilly building, and new building into a legible composite entity. We want to use the available budget to radically transform the School into an integrated organism, upgrading the environmental performance of the existing structure and fabric. The new building forms a head house, a terminus to the linear train of existing buildings. We like the accumulated narrative, the 4-part story of the history of the school, the sequence from the 19th to the 21st century. We’ve captioned our project A Connected School.

Admission is free but places are limited. RSVP here .
