NEIL LEACH LECTURE – Adaptation

This evening we had the pleasure of partaking in the Lecture on behalf of Neil Leach, as part of the IAAC Fall Lecture Series 2013. During the Lecture entitled Adaptation a series of topics were touched around the following concepts: within contemporary architecture design a significant shift in emphasis can be detected – a move away from an architecture based primarily on visual concerns towards an architecture justified by its performance. Structural, constructional, economic, environmental and other parameters – concerns that were once relegated to a secondary level – have now become primary, and are embraced as positive inputs into the design process from outset. Architecture – it would seem – is now preoccupied less with style and appearance, and increasingly with material processes and performance. It is as though a new architectural design sensibility has emerged.
