Mackintosh School of Architecture FRIDAY LECTURE SERIES (FLS)
Jonathan Sergison has taught at a number of schools of architecture, including the Architectural Association in London, was Visiting Professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich and at the École Polytechnique Fédérale in Lausanne (EPFL), has served on a number of international architectural competition juries and as external examiner at the University of Cambridge.
He is currently Professor of Architectural Design at the Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio, Switzerland. In addition to his academic commitments, he lectures extensively both in the UK and abroad and writes regularly on architecture.
Since the establishing of the practice in 1996, Sergison Bates Architects have earned a reputation as one of the UK’s leading architectural practices, having successfully engaged with all dimensions of architectural and urban design rather than focusing on narrow specialisms. They are currently involved in a wide range of projects at different scales, ranging from urban planning and regeneration to public buildings and housing in the UK and mainland Europe.
The work of the practice has been extensively published and exhibited and many of their buildings have won awards. The practice has also won international recognition for ‘innovative developments in architecture’ (Erich Schelling Medal for Architecture) and architectural excellence (Heinrich Tessenow Gold Medal for Architecture) and some of their projects were exhibited in the British Pavilion at the 2008 Architecture Biennale in Venice.
Hosted by The Mackintosh School of Architecture, these lectures look beyond buildings and make connections between architecture and wider issues like culture and the urban environment. This year's theme for FLS is "Architecture and..." Guest lecturers have been invited to develop their respective lectures under themes that expand the subject of architecture beyond merely buildings to include other related disciplines in ways that mirror the scope of contemporary practice. The talks will establish relationships ranging in scale from the vastness of cities and urban environments through to the more immediate interaction involved in precision manufacturing processes. With the distinct personal perspectives of our guests, experiences operating in diverse local, national and European contexts, there is something for everyone's interest.
