Guest Lecture Series
5pm, Thursday 10th November, Budden Lecture Theatre
Alun Jones will talk about the artistic and philosophical ideas that underpin the work of the practice and how they seek to embed their work in a broader understanding of culture.
Biog - Alun was born in Wales and studied architecture at the University of Cambridge and at the University of Bath, where he wrote an MPhil on reconstruction of Alberti’s Church of San Sebastiano in Mantua.
Alun worked for Caruso St John and was the project architect for The Walsall Art Gallery before setting up Dow Jones Architects with Biba Dow in 2000. Their wide-ranging body of work has won numerous awards and been published internationally. They have developed a reputation for making carefully crafted contemporary architecture often in complex settings. Their work has a strong interest in the relationship between materials and place and what this might say about culture.
Alun has taught design at a number of schools of architecture in the UK and Ireland including the AA, Bath and London Met, and is an RIBA external examiner.
