‘Digital Architecture’ Open Lecture Series kicks off with Richard Hyams

The latest addition to the Kent School of Architecture’s Open Lectures is the new ‘Digital Architecture’ series curated by Director of Digital Architecture, Dr Tim Ireland, whereby experts in the field of computational design, digital architecture and fabrication are invited to present their work and prompt critical discourse about the use of digital technology in design.

The first lecture of this new series entitled, ‘Forget Everything You Know’ will be given by Richard Hyams from Astudio on Tuesday 3rd October at 6PM in Marlowe Lecture Theatre 1.

Richard’s lecture will challenge you all to embrace the digital revolution. Richard will demonstrate through his work that to continually deliver better design we must learn to forget everything we know.

Richard Hyams is motivated by unique design challenges and enjoys leading design at and beyond the known boundaries of material and technology. Richard is always keen to challenge the status quo and leads teams to deliver highly individual buildings that inspire and delight. Richard’s pragmatism for understanding a complex brief and finding elegant yet simple solutions have placed Astudio as one of the most successful rising practices
Richard’s strategy to deliver high quality design for any building or procurement type and driving a research team to investigate future materials and technologies lead Astudio to become Architectural Practice of the Year after just 6 years in practice.
