About this talk

Running time: 35 minutes

Bob Allies, Edinburgh trained and a Rome Scholar from 1983 - 1987, set up in partnership with Graham Morrison in London in 1984. Together they have produced distinguished, widely recognised architecture and have won a number of competitions in the UK. Allies speaks for both of them when he says that their approach is a Modernist one, which brings into the brief the aspect of context. For them architecture has to develop out of a "tabula inscripta" and not the "tabula rasa" of the 1960s.

Their architecture responds to the ways existing places can be transformed to a set of new conditions. This is illustrated in the work they discuss in their talk.
