About this talk

Running time: 51 minutes

Jeremy Dixon and Edward Jones were students together at the Architectural Association, and were close friends for many years before setting up the partnership Dixon - Jones in 1972, and so they share stored references to do with architecture.

For this recording they have selected, out of a huge body of work, projects in London - the Royal Opera House, the National Portrait Gallery, the National Gallery and Somerset House; all "National Treasures" - that come close to the architects' long-time concern for protecting the nature of cities, not merely in terms of conservation.

Dixon and Jones also describe their work on the Venice Bus Station in A Gateway For Venice.
