About this talk

Running time: 37 minutes

Israeli-born Ron Arad is a prolific designer whose output spans buildings, furniture and sculpture. Perhaps his best known work, the Design Museum in Holon, Israel, has become a symbol for the city. His recent projects include a cancer treatment centre, an upside down tower and the interior makeover of the famous Watergate Hotel in Washington D.C.

In this talk, Ron Arad discusses training at the Architectural Association during the 1970s, his first success with the iconic 1981 Rover Chair, current architecture and design projects, and the freedom that comes from embracing many disciplines.

This talk comes nearly 30 years after Arad originally spoke to us in Expectations Broken By Design in 1987.

Recorded at Ron Arad's London studio, October 2016.
