Pop-Ups and Parliament

11 July 2024

18:00 -19:00

Pop-Up Parliament (1965) a project by architect Cedric Price and Paul Barker and Anthony Colbert and published in social affairs magazine New Society is a prompt for Samantha Hardingham to present Price’s work and specifically his engagement with politics - its processes, people, parties and spaces. Samantha will also share how the project has inspired subsequent generations to re-think the role of architecture as a powerful prop for participatory democracy.

The event is open to all architects, students and people interested in Cedric Price and ideas which can bring change and architectures of democracy. Booking required!
