The Garden Museum is five years old, and to celebrate its anniversary, Alun Jones and Biba Dow are being interviewed by journalist Evan Davis at the Garden Museum.
They will be talking about projects old and new, about the relationship between architecture and landscape, recovering a shared public realm, and the decisions they make in running their architectural practice.
The lecture is on Tuesday May 17th at 7pm at the museum. Full details and tickets can be found here.
Discover how the practice conceived designs which included the Garden Cafe and learning spaces centred around a courtyard garden designed by Dan Pearson, as well as reimagining the galleries inside the original medieval church building. The design was picked by The Observer’s Rowan Moore as one of his top five projects of 2017, and awarded the Architects Journal Retrofit Award for Museums & Galleries in 2018.
Biba and Alun will discuss their design for the Garden Museum five years on, and other projects including Maggie’s Centre in Cardiff, the redevelopment of Bevis Marks Synagogue, Britain’s oldest synagogue, and their new building for the Leach Pottery in St Ives. They will explore ideas around the relationship between architecture and landscape, what guides them in shaping their practice, and urban values in the public realm.
