Professor Neil Spiller is dean of the school of architecture at Greenwich University. Before moving to Greenwich in September 2010, he was vice-dean at the Bartlett school of architecture, where he founded AVATAR, the Advanced Virtual and Technological Architecture Research Group.
In this talk, Spiller describes his 14-year long Communicating Vessels project - an architectural paracosm set on an island in Kent. His designs for the island - which include a walled garden in memory of the American theorist Lebbeus Woods - draw on the work of the Surrealists, science fiction and technological advances such as nanotechnology and augmented reality.
The talk was recorded at the Building Centre, London.
