Think Time: Timescales (5x x5 x5)

FCBStudios are pleased to invite you to an evening talk in Bristol. In the first of our Think Time events we will consider TIMESCALES (5 X 5 X 5). Inspired by Eames short film: 10 X 10, and joined by architects Carmody Groarke, and Caruso St.John, we will think about buildings built for 5 weeks, 5 decades, and 5 centuries.

How do buildings respond to their own lifecycle? How does the city manage its growth and decline? What do the expanding numbers of protected buildings and conservation areas mean for our urban development?

We hope that the evening considers the poetry, as well as the pragmatics, of the building lifecycle, and we look forward to seeing you there!
