Don’t miss Clive Wilkinson’s and Lorcan O’Herlihy’s participation!

Welcome to Los Angeles, home of the iconic Hollywood Sign, and many architects that have achieved international recognition for their work. We are proud to host two extraordinary architects who will speak at the fourth session of our second Virtual World Tour on Tuesday, November 30th, 2021 live at 10:30 PST (L.A. time) / 19:30 CET (Berlin time).

With Clive Wilkinson, Clive Wilkinson Architects, and Lorcan O’Herlihy, Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects, we will have two speakers that approach architecture in a holistic manner. However, as always with Architects, not Architecture we will not be talking about their architectural works.

What we will hear about instead is their biographies, the events and the anecdotes that shaped the speakers and inspired them to produce the architecture they are known for.

Don’t hesitate to join us, as we get to know our two speakers:


Clive Wilkinson, Clive Wilkinson Architects, www.clivewilkinson.com

Lorcan O’Herlihy, Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects: LOHA, www.loharchitects.com

This event is kindly supported by the AnA partners.
