Craft, materiality and CLT
Anthony will be joining the London Society on 22 November to discuss how timber buildings could change London's landscape.
The event will explore how craft and materiality maintain their allure in architecture, despite the global age and rise of digital design.
Henry Squire, Roz Barr and Anthony Thistleton will describe three projects in London in which handcrafted elements or overt materiality play a large role.
London Society committee member, Susan Holder (ex Crafts Council) will chair a discussion on the enduring appeal of craft in architecture and how it contributes to London’s architectural character.
Anthony will advocate the benefits of timber buildings and explain how Waugh Thislteton has convinced developers and the public that this traditional material has both health and economic benefits.
