Real Architecture: Paul Monaghan, AHMM, presents Westminster Academy

13 November 2008

A Real Architecture first; an in-situ lesson on the art of school architecture as AHMM presents their Stirling Prize short-listed academy. The rectangular glazed green terracotta-clad building is five-storeys high rising out of North London’s urbanity. It is a testament to how much architecture can reinvent a formula long past its prime, not least the inclusion of inspiring furniture by Eames and Jasper Morrison and anti-bullying multi-exit toilets. For the first time members of the public will have the opportunity to hear the stories and psychology behind everything from the giant light-filled atrium to the concrete, neon-lit lecture theatre.

Chaired by Sarah Ichioka, Director, The Architecture Foundation
