The 2016 John Edwards Lecture is supported by The Estate of Francis Bacon and The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Great Britain.

The Architecture Foundation, in association with the Barbican, presents Architecture on Stage – a programme of talks and debates.

 

The Belgian architects Kersten Geers and David van Severen have maintained a rich creative partnership with the Dutch photographer Bas Princen since the formation of their practice, OFFICE KGDVS, in 2003. Since then, Princen has not only consistently photographed OFFICE KGDVS's work but has collaborated with it on a number of exhibitions where his large format photographs of landscapes and the built environment have been presented alongside representations of OFFICE KGDVS's work.

The John Edwards Lecture is The Architecture Foundation's headline annual dialogue presenting leading international architects in conversation with influential figures from other disciplines – from artists and filmmakers to writers and philosophers. The lecture presents a public conversation connecting architecture with other disciplines, extending the dialogue around what architecture is, and can be.  The John Edwards Lecture was inaugurated in 2009, through the generosity of The Estate of Francis Bacon.
