A talk by Reineir de Graaf book now
Four Walls and a Roof
In this talk, architect Reinier de Graaf reflects on his own experiences in the field, to reveal the world of contemporary architecture in vivid snapshots: from suburban New York to the rubble of northern Iraq, from the corridors of wealth in London, Moscow, and Dubai to garbage-strewn wastelands that represent the demolished hopes of postwar social housing.
De Graaf will share his views on the intricacies and complexities of architecture’s relationship to developers, politicians, bureaucrats, and consultants - whose interests and objectives are determining what and how architects design.
This event coincides with the launch of Reinier de Graaf new book, ‘Four Walls and a Roof, The Complex Nature of a Simple Profession’.
Part of the exhibition programme for Beazley Designs of the Year.
