The Royal College of Physicians is the venue for the eighth annual Lignacite Lecture, Crossing Borders on 3rd October. The lectures feature a dialogue between two speakers with a venue of architectural interest as the backdrop.

This year, Sean Griffiths (Fashion Architecture Taste) and Erik Kessels (advertising agency KesselsKramer) will discuss how their work together crosses the boundaries between art, design and architecture.

The Royal College of Physicians building, designed by Dennis Lasdun in 1959, is widely recognised as one of the finest examples of 1960s British architecture. It was given a Grade I listing by English Heritage in 1998.

Places for the lecture are limited and by invitation only. Please email us if you would like to register your interest.
