MK Gallery is delighted to partner with the Buckinghamshire Society of Architects on their third annual RIBA Lecture, and the first in our new auditorium. Each year well-known, inspirational architects with a connection to the county are invited to deliver a talk on their practice, and we are pleased that MK Gallery expansion architect Tom Emerson will be delivering the 2019 edition. The Buckinghamshire Society of Architects represents more than 400 local members of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Its annual lectures are of general interest and open to all.
Tom Emerson founded 6a architects with Stephanie Macdonald in London in 2001. He studied at the University of Bath, the Royal College of Art in London and the University of Cambridge. He currently runs Studio Tom Emerson at ETH Zurich and has previously held teaching positions at the University of Cambridge (2004–10), the Architectural Association (2000–04) and in the Department of Fine Art at Chelsea School of Art. He has been guest lecturer and critic in many schools of architecture in the UK and Europe and has published numerous articles on architecture, art and literature. Recent projects include: South London Gallery Fire Station in Peckham; a new studio for Photographer Juergen Teller; Cowan Court, Churchill College, University of Cambridge and MK Gallery’s expansion.
