Swimmers, RIBA 2015


In collaboration with Poet in the City and their new Platforms initiative, Swimmers presents an event at the RIBA to launch the beginning of a new 2015 programme of events, projects and publications. Placing poets and architects in conversation, we ask whether poetry and architecture can together reveal something new about our contemporary experience of space. How do the two artforms inform each other, and what can poetry and architecture and their intersection tell us about modern habits and habitation? This event features discussion and readings from acclaimed poets Kate Kilalea and Matthew Gregory and award winning architects Will Alsop and Niall Mclaughlin.
