Art, Architecture and Design
Prolific writer and broadcaster Jonathan Meades says his latest work, Museum Without Walls, ‘concerns buildings, the gaps between them, their serendipitous conjunctions and grotesque collisions. High architecture comes into it, but so too do inspired bricolage, plutocratic boasts, arid estates, mighty sprawl’. Meades, who writes about culture, place and architecture, will discuss and read from his work.
Meades has published novels and short stories, and is a prolific broadcaster. His celebrated TV series include Abroad in Britain, Magnetic North (2008) and Off Kilter (2009), and Jonathan Meades on France (2012), while The Joy Of Essex airs on BBC4 in January 2013. His novels include Pompey and The Fowler Family Business.
This session is presented by the Department of English and Modern Languages, and the School of Architecture, at Oxford Brookes University.
