For the first Building on the Built event of 2023 we will be joined by Professor Graeme Brooker. Graham is a designer, Professor and Head of Interior Design at the Royal College of Art in London and has published several books on the histories and theories of interior architecture, many of which focus on the reuse of existing artefacts, materials, buildings and urban structures.

Through his writings and extensive academic contributions Graeme has explored the theoretical and philosophical background to the reworking of existing spaces, shedding light on the ambiguity of the subject matter and how this effects the way it is taught, articulated and undertaken in practice. Graeme’s fifteenth book, 50/50 Fifty Words for Reuse, was published in 2021.

This talk takes place at 7pm on Wednesday 1st February 2023 at the ACAVA Faroe Road Studios in West London.

Building on the Built

About Building on the Built is a programme of talks, hosted by Jonathan Tuckey Design, which aims to promote the topic of architectural work connected with existing structures and, more specifically, to look at work that might challenge the way in which work on existing structures is approached today. Building on the Built aims to focus on work that celebrates an alternative to pure architecture, work that is evolving, mongrel and collaborative with time. Previous speakers have included, Roz Barr Architects, McCollough Mulvin Architects, Henley Halebrown Architects, Office MMX and Slovenian practice Ambient and the author Fred Scott. In parallel to our programme of talks, we publish articles, texts and images on our website that act as an accompanying archive. The archive includes architectural projects, photographic investigations and other artistic responses to built work. We welcome submission ideas and possible collaborations.
