Introduction by Jan Pesman on 9 Oct
Filmic ode to Peter Rice, the brilliant engineer who worked on the most iconic buildings of the twentieth century. An Engineer Imagines follows Rice’s extraordinary life, from his native Ireland and his work on Lloyd’s of London, the Centre Pompidou and Sydney Opera House, to his tragic death in 1992. Instead of focusing on the architect, director Marcus Robinson shows how an engineer can be an innovator in architecture. Celebrated architects and critics such as Renzo Piano, Jonathan Glancey and Richard Rogers explain how his work changed architecture forever.
Update 5 October: extra tickets have been made available for the screening on Thursday 8 October 16:30.
