Inside/Out Lecture – Turner Works: Agile Uses

18 November 2019 | 6.30pm



Carl Turner, Founder of Turner Works will be speaking in this instalment of the Inside/Out lecture series on Agile Uses.  Agile Uses is a new way of thinking about spaces and buildings, taking a meanwhile or short-term approach as a way of testing, incubating and enlivening cities. To facilitate this way of working, Turner Works have expanded the perceived role of the architect to encompass a broader range of skills; imagining, designing, making, running. Pop Brixton and Peckham Levels have established a new understanding of regeneration, targeting local communities through the PULL effect: populate, unlock, learn, legacy.

Turner Works, formerly Carl Turner Architects, is an award-winning, architectural studio that believes in creating thought-provoking and well-crafted architectural projects. As a studio they are creative, responsive and not afraid to take a risk when it feels right. As a consequence, they have found themselves playing the role of not only architect but also developer, curator and maker. The practice has established a reputation for delivering high impact projects, often producing innovative design solutions despite limited resources. They work with a diverse range of clients including local authorities, arts and cultural organisations, not for profits and commercial developers.
