Peter Lonergan
Formal CPD
2 Hours - FORMAL
Duration: 01:20:26
The houses of Bruce Rickard exhibit the practice of architecture unlike any other architect of the 20th century. While the tools of practice were the same his method had a large measure of science, designed to achieve domestic perfection, an ideal that was however, elusive.
In this talk, Peter introduces the archive of Bruce, which allows a unique and intriguing insight into the work as well as the life of the architect. He also outlines chapters of his recently published book, in which a series of essays by invited authors create the narrative.
