Guest Lecture Series: Neil Thomas
Neil Thomas, Director, Atelier One, Structural engineers
Thursday 24th February 6pm Online
Introduced by Professor Ola Uduku, Head of the Liverpool School of Architecture
As an engineer how can I reconcile the two worlds I inhabit ?
The first, a love of a nature and my desire to promote a world that can be as sustainable as I can make it.
The second, a world of rock and roll.
I would like to show some radical steps which allow my two worlds to collide.
This event is timed to coincide with the Carbon Counts Exhibition which is showing live at LSA until May 2022
