About this talk

Running time: 39 minutes

British architect Tony Fretton, whose work includes the Lisson Gallery, London (1992), the Red House, London (2001) and the British Embassy in Warsaw (2010), has been compared to the Viennese master Adolf Loos for his thoughtful approach and meticulously crafted interiors.

In this talk, Fretton discusses his approach to architecture, which he traces back to an early interest in performance art, and describes his experience with two recent projects in Belgium: Deinze Town Hall and Westkaai Towers, Antwerp.

He also touches on his earlier projects, which include the refurbishment of Camden Arts Centre, London (2004) and a new house for the sculptor Anish Kapoor in Chelsea, London (2008).

Recorded at Tony Fretton Architects, London, October 2018.
