Lecture: Architect John Glew

The English architect and designer John Glew will give a lecture on his work on the 6th of March in the Stack Theatre, Cork School of Music.
John Glew set up his practice in 2000, having previously worked with Wilfried Wang, Trevor Horne and Dixon-Jones and collaborated with Tony Fretton. He has taught, lectured and exhibited in the UK, Scandinavia and the USA, including at the Royal College of Art, the Architectural Association and the Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts where he was Visiting Professor in 1995 and 2001. In 1983 he was awarded the Eileen Gray Travel Scholarship to the USA and in 2007 he was awarded the Statenskunstfund –The Danish National Arts Award– in recognition of his contributions to architecture and culture in Denmark. His work, including articles by Tony Fretton, Mark Pimlott, James Payne, Kjeld Vindum and Thomas Bo-Jensen, has been published internationally,
John Glew’s architecture, design and teaching is informed by observation and an interest in specific responses to our surroundings. His practice is broad-based, ranging from specific design to cultural buildings, landscape and residential projects, including work for the London Director of the Gagosian Gallery and the Chief Curator of the Whitney Museum NYC, Anthony D’Offay, the UNESCO World Heritage Site Parco di Cilento, Jasper Morrison, and Leeds Grand Theatre.

This lecture has been organised by the RIAI Southern Region with the UCC Architecture Society.
