The next ADFAS lecture will be held at The Crossing Theatre on Monday, September 16 and will be presented by Colin Davies.

Our speaker Colin Davies is from the UK, is an architect, writer, former editor of The Architects’ Journal and a regular contributor to architectural magazines world-wide.

He was until recently Professor of Architectural Theory at London Metropolitan University and has made numerous TV and radio appearances.

Dame Zaha Hadid died on March 31, 2016 at the age of 65, leaving an estate of $127 million

Architectural historians of the future will surely recognise her as one of the most important architects of the early 21st century.

She was born in Iraq but she made Britain her home, and her reputation was global.

This lecture tells the story of her career from the visionary projects of the 1980s, through the years of frustration when her designs were considered unbuildable, to the prolific crop of successful projects built all over the world in the last decade of her life.

ADFAS lectures are held in Cinema 1, The Crossing Theatre, with arrival in the foyer at 6.30pm onwards for a 7pm start.

Tickets are available on the night at the door.

Lecture time is about an hour, with drinks and canapés in the café afterwards.

Everyone is welcome to come along, be entertained and informed at ADFS talks.
