Lord Foster to deliver his inaugural lecture as Humanitas Visiting Professor of Architecture at the University of Oxford
The world-renowned architect Norman Foster will deliver his inaugural lecture as Visiting Professor in Architecture at 5 p.m. on Monday, 29 November, in the Examination Schools, Oxford University.
I am grateful to Lord Weidenfeld and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue for the invitation to be the Humanitas Visiting Professor of Architecture. This is a timely opportunity to consider ‘performance’ in architecture in the context of the rapid growth of cities and their populations, as the need to critically address issues of energy and the environment with an integrated approach to sustainable design is ever more imperative.
Lord Foster of Thames Bank OM
Norman Foster will address one of the key questions facing humanity in the next century: how do we accommodate sustainably even larger populations in cities in a way that does not recklessly deplete natural resources? The address offers an alternative vision, in an experiment, that is already becoming a practical reality in Masdar.
Unfortunately, due to high demand for the tickets, booking for this event is now closed. If you are still interested in this lecture, it will be possible to view a recording after the event.
