Architecture Club: Form Follows Life-cycle with Matthew Barnett Howland & Dido Milne

Tuesday 4th February

Doors 7pm Talk 7.30pm

With a focus on what is solid, simple and sustainable, Cork House is an attempt to make both walls and roof from a single bio-renewable material. Conceived as a kit-of-parts, blocks of expanded cork and engineered timber components are prefabricated off-site and assembled by hand on-site without mortar or glue – like a giant organic LEGO® system.

Using the issues raised by this innovative project, the presentation is designed to lead into a discussion about the potential of a ‘whole-life approach’ to designing and making buildings.

“If Cork House were a book, it would be a manifesto or polemical tract that aimed to radically reframe the processes of architecture and construction through the prism of whole life sustainability, from design to demolition.”
