Festival Hub, Anderston Kelvingrove Parish Church, 759 Argyle St, G3 8DS
Join architectural historian Barnabas Calder for a look at the long standing relationship between architecture and energy, focusing on Brutalism. Calder explores how this architecture celebrated and exploited the post-WWII energy boom, bringing with it liberating and life-enhancing technologies and possibilities to Glasgow and cities worldwide.
Dr Barnabas Calder is Senior Lecturer in Architecture at Liverpool University, and a trustee of the Twentieth Century Society. He is the author of Raw Concrete: The Beauty of Brutalism (William Heinemann, 2016), which has chapters on Glasgow's Newbery Tower, Strathclyde Architecture Building and Anderston Centre. He will be happy to sign copies at the end of the evening.
