Over the past few years Kevin McCloud has become the popular face of architecture on British television and a strong advocate of the role of the architect in good design. His ability to summarise the qualities that make a good building are well known to viewers of the annual RIBA Stirling Prize and Grand Designs. Kevin recently spent time in the slums of Mumbai for Channel 4.
In this lecture he argues that grand designs will not solve all the problems of our cities. Instead he proposes that true sustainability will be achieved when architects get together with residents to make the best of what is already there.
