By Design: Farshid Moussavi

By Design, a talk series at Sir John Soane’s Museum, in partnership with Luke Irwin, is back for its fourth season. In this talk, Alice Rawsthorn talks to internationally renowned architect Farshid Moussavi. Inspired by Sir John Soane’s own extraordinary collection, and co-hosted by Will Gompertz, Director of Arts and Learning at the Barbican, and Alice Rawsthorn, award-winning design critic and author, the series reflects on the power of objects – large or small, mundane or exceptional, aesthetic or utilitarian – to spark new ideas, and act as a spur for different forms of creativity. Date: 23 May 2023, 6.30pm-9pm
