Join us for the second series of Reputations Live at the Soane Museum, presenting architecture’s biggest influencers and agitators from the AR’s Reputations series
The second series of Reputations Live will once again explores the most prominent, prolific and notorious architects from Sir John Soane’s day to our present age, as featured in the AR’s Reputations series, started in 2011.
In the first talk of the programme, Darran Anderson, art and architecture writer and author of Imaginary Cities, presents Giovanni Battista Piranesi. The last of the Ancients and the first of the moderns, Piranesi’s legacy can be felt from the work of Lebbeus Woods and Alexander Brodsky to PoMo and Brutalism.
