"In terms of architecture, structure and design, this session looks at whether (structural) honesty implies (architectural) integrity? Finally, does knowing how a particular building stands up to improve and enhance your appreciation of its architecture? Is unexpressed structure engineeringly clever, or architecturally deceitful?
This is one of the debates in ManTownHuman's Critical Subjects Summer School which was a week-long opportunity for some of the keenest young design students - from UK and across the world - to engage in a series of intellectual, architectural and urban design challenges facilitated by leading names in the field."
Austin Williams, Director, Future Cities Project; Associate Professor in Architecture at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University
