Tuesday 10 March
Market garden /cycle park, Havana 1998
For this lunchtime lecture at the AA, Deborah Saunt will describe how she has been charting a position which has evolved between a number of simultaneous conditions. These include projects in her own practice and those of other architects; between the culture of architecture and the actual making and building of a finished product; and between the institution and traditions of architecture and new ways of recognizing and judging architecture.
Whilst establishing her own practice, Deborah Saunt worked with Tony Fretton Architects and is currently involved with the AA's Diploma Unit 7 students on their projects for Dunkirk and Havana. A visiting critic and lecturer at several colleges including the Royal College of Art, the Bartlett, Cambridge, Glasgow School of Art and Kingston, Saunt was also a recent contributor to the 'End of Decadence' project at the ICA. She was involved in initiating the RIBA's Jane Drew Prize for architectural collaboration and diversity.
