Adrian Forty, Emeritus Professor of Architectural History, will give a special lecture sponsored by the OBEL AWARD at the Royal Danish Academy on 24 October 2022.
Architecture is full of disappointments, but they are rarely acknowledeged. Disappointment is not a noble, nor a grand emotion. Unworthy, even shameful, it hardly registers on the scale of affect. Nonetheless it is commonplace and has become our default emotion for experiences of all kinds – it pervades modern life. How have writers and artists treated it? And, more particularly, how does architecture, more prone to disappointment than probably any other art, deal with its many disappointments? This is a talk for all who have known disappointment.
Adrian Forty, Emeritus Professor of Architectural History at The Bartlett, the Faculty of the Built Environment at University College London, will give a lecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen on Monday 24 October, 2022 to share his ideas with students and professionals in both academia and the industry.
The lecture is sponsored by the OBEL AWARD. It is free and open for all.
Place: the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Philip De Langes Allé 10, 1435 Copenhagen.
Time: Monday 24 October, 2022 at 2-4 p.m..
