Knauf partners with Dezeen for new Architecture Project Talks


Knauf’s partnership with architecture and design magazine, Dezeen has gone online to continue providing first class events during the pandemic.


A new online lecture series, Architecture Project Talks launches this month with three talks which count towards CPD points for UK architects. The talks will feature presentations by architects about key projects that involve historic structures, sustainable materials and digital reconstruction methods.


Our collaboration with Dezeen began in 2018 when Knauf opened its first showroom in Clerkenwell, London. Designed as a destination for inspiration and collaborative working with the architect and design community, the partnership with Dezeen seemed a natural fit.


Dezeen is known throughout the global architecture community for its award-winning journalism and innovative approach to online publishing.


The partnership began with a well-attended series of talks held in the Knauf Clerkenwell showroom with a panel of experienced architects discussing topics such as Acoustics in Architecture and Robotics in Construction.


We look forward to welcoming visitors back to the Clerkenwell showroom very soon, but in the meantime have taken our latest series of talks with Dezeen online.


The first talk will take place at 1pm on Friday 14th May. Martin Lydon of architect firm, Haworth Tompkins will discuss the twelve year renovation of Battersea Arts Centre. He will talk about the design and delivery process, the challenges of working with a historic building and how the studio handled the fire that destroyed the building midway through its renovation.


The second talk in June will focus on Cork House, a residential building made entirely of sustainable sourced cork which is located beside the River Thames in Berkshire.


The final talk in the series in July will feature architecture studio Groupwork discussing 168 Upper Street, a terrace corner that has a cast concrete façade punctuated with mismatched openings.
