Our friends at the Royal Academy are kindly keeping in touch with details of their architecture programme events, especially when they think these will interest MA CCI students. The latest is on a hot topic in the cultural and creative industries: patronage.
They tell us: “The role of a patron in contemporary society, albeit different, is as important now as it was in Palladio’s time. Patronage involves the ability to participate collaboratively in the making of places and the shaping of our living environment. Exhibition co-curator Guido Beltramini discusses Palladio’s relationship with his clients, while Yuli Toh of Toh Shimazaki Architects and Roger Zogolovitch of AZ Urban Studio discuss the possibilities of patronage today.”
It takes place on Monday 9 February 2009 at the Geological Society, Piccadilly, W1; 6.30–8 pm; £7/£4* (this includes a drink!).
