Charles Rice presents Atrium Effects with Bob Stewart from Zenith (keynote address)
Friday 7 September, 5:30 to 8 pm at State Libary of Western Australia Theatre.

Charles Rice, an architectural historian, theorist and critic is Professor of Architectural History and Theory and Head of the school of Art and Design History at Kingston University, UK. His speech: 'Atrium Effects: John Portman and the Emergence of Interior Urbanism' looks at the experience of being 'inside' a city, in particular being in atrium spaces which Rice finds compelling not simply because they can be so spectacular (and also incredibly banal) but because they defy the terms by which urban space is normally critiqued. For Rice, Interior urbanism is a new kind of spatial development in the city.

Entry: $40 or $30 unwaged/concession.  Register online here before 31 August.

Saturday 8 September, 5:30 to 8 pm at State Libary of Western Australia Theatre.
Beatriz Colomina is Professor of Architecture and Founding Director of the Program in Media and Modernity at Princeton University. Her speech 'Unbreathed Air, 1956: Alison and Peter Smithson's House of the Future' looks at this playfully seductive house that takes advantage of all the latest technologies to deal with the most basic of all emotions – fear.
Entry: $40 or $30 unwaged/concession.  Register online here before 31 August.
