Hear architect Peter Barber RA discuss the importance of craft in architectural design, in this live-streamed conversation.

Peter Barber RA, architect and founder of the multi-award-winning practice Peter Barber Architects, will be in conversation with Grant Gibson, exploring the power of the handmade in architecture.

As the curator of the Architecture Room in this year’s Summer Exhibition, Barber will talk about his theme “making is thinking”. He will discuss the importance of trial and error in creative practice, and the advantages of making things by hand in a world shaped by digital drawing.

This event is a live-stream of part of the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition architecture afternoon. There will be an opportunity to ask questions online at the end of the discussion.
