Conversation and Contingent:  inaugural lecture by Andrew Clancy, Professor of Architecture

Architects are increasingly involved in the making of ordinary fabric and in working closely with existing structures. These contexts are ones where the weight of the architectural intervention is slight in comparison to the economic and legislative forces bearing on it. In the place of certainty and orthodoxy the architect must be nimble in dealing with the pluralistic and fragmentary realities of today's world. In this talk Andrew Clancy reflects on his work as an academic and practitioner in dealing with this contingency, and how this thinking is manifest in the practice he shares with Colm Moore - Clancy Moore Architects.
