Materials for Architecture Conference

Our Director, Luis Monteiro, spoke at Materials for Architecture on Thursday 26 April.

‘Light is to architecture like pulse is to music, the witness of time, the metaphor of life. The artistic life of the building is expressed through the way it produces and modulates its light.’

Luis Monteiro offered a unique insight into this concept of light as a building material beginning with Wellington Bench, an item of gallery furniture showcased as part of the ‘Living with Art’ exhibition at the Albion Barn in conjunction with Frieze Art 2016 London, and moving onto Wellington College, a performing arts centre in Berkshire where the glass wall, which unveils the interiors of the Cultural Living Room in the Performance Art Centre, gives the timber cladding above a deceptive expression of weightlessness.
