Messums Wiltshire Talk

On the 12th September Niall will be part of  a panel discussion alongside Peter Clegg, Piers Taylor and Jenny Jones. Chaired by Kate Goodwin ‘A Place Together’ will examine the future of the city centre and high rise architecture; airports and theme parks.

The discussion takes Elisabeth Frink’s reconstructed Woolland Studio – and her creative environment as the backdrop. A Place Apart (starts 10:30am) and A Place Together (starts 2pm), which recall Frink’s statement about her studio and solitary practice and a contrasting talk about how collective spaces need to be reimagined and how architecture is adapting to a post Covid-19 society.

Tickets can be purchased here.

An article by Andrew Carr has been published in Architectural Research Quarterly examining themes in the work of our practice. “Repeating linear elements organised into arrays and lattices are commonly manifest in the work of Níall McLaughlin Architects.” The article “describes a series of projects that explore the use of this ‘architecture of line’ in the work of the practice.”
