As a response to Bjarne Melgaard’s exhibition A House to Die In, cultural critic Ben Highmore and architect and theorist Adrian Lahoud join Charles Rice to discuss pattern and scale as key concepts in understanding relations between art and architecture.
Ben Highmore is Reader in Cultural Studies at the University of Sussex. His most recent books are A Passion for Cultural Studies (Palgrave, 2009) and Ordinary Lives: Studies in the Everyday (Routledge, 2011), and the edited collection The Design Culture Reader (Routledge, 2009).
Adrian Lahoud is an architect and teacher. A regular contributor to academic and mainstream architectural publications, in 2010 he co-edited a special issue of Architectural Design titled Post-traumatic Urbanism. His work has been exhibited at the Prague Quadrennial (2011) and in Korea at the Design Biennale Gwanju (2011) co-curated by Ai Weiwei. Currently he is Director of the March Urban Design at The Bartlett and Coordinator of the MA in Research Architecture at Goldsmiths.
Professor Charles Rice is an architectural historian, theorist and critic, and is Head of the School of Art and Design History at Kingston University.
