Art needs an appropriate built environment within which it can be showcased to greatest effect, while architecture needs art to turn bricks, steel and concrete into a space in which people want to live, to learn, to shop and to work.
In this webinar we will examine the inter- relation between art and architecture through the works by architects on the panel.
