Meeting Architecture: Richard Deacon & Eric Parry at the RCA

Organised by the British School in Rome, architect Eric Parry and artist Richard Deacon will look at the links between architecture and art

Meeting Architecture, the British School at Rome’s architecture programme, will this year continue to analyse the relationship and cross-over between architecture and some of the other creative processes in a series of lectures and study exhibitions by leading figures in architecture, art and film.

Tonight the British architect Eric Parry and the British artist Richard Deacon have collaborated for many years and this event will provide a rare opportunity to hear them discuss the nature of their collaborations as well as present for the first time an analysis of some of their work together.

The study-exhibition will focus on three different projects in London: Millennium Bridge, the work that Deacon and Parry were invited to present for the Millennium Bridge competition in 1996, their collaboration on the façade of Eric Parry’s Finsbury Square building (1999-2001), and their work together on St James’s Gateway, at the heart of Piccadilly Circus (2008-2013).
