We are programming two events in association with New Horizon_architecture from Ireland which is being presented by Irish Design 2015 (ID2015)  at London Festival of Architecture both are free and open to all, but spaces are limited so please book.

Who'd be a Young Architect?
4 June, 6pm
Red Pavilion, Lewis Cubitt Square, Kings Cross, London. N1C 4UZ.

Irish and London architects compare experiences at the start of their careers and we ask if now is a good time to be young in architecture.

This panel discussion will look at the new ways young architects in the UK and Ireland work, if it is possible to identify a specific condition of being ‘young’ in architecture and how the preoccupations and concerns of young architects differ from previous generations.

Speakers include:
Vicky Richardson, Director of Architecture, Design, Fashion, British Council
Ellis Woodman, Director Architecture Foundation
Shane O'Toole, Architecture Critic and former Director Irish Architecture Foundation
Andrew Clancy, Clancy Moore Architects
Alastair Hall, Hall McKnight Architects
Je Ahn, Studio Weave
