The Eden Project with William Horgan RIBA

William Horgan RIBA from Grimshaw will describe the process of envisioning and creating the Eden Project in Cornwall (UK) which opened in 2001. Eden's remarkable structures demonstrate an unprecedented use of ETFE cladding as a novel response to challenging terrain conditions.

Horgan is a deep and innovative thinker who loves to design. He brings to his projects conceptual ideas and technical solutions often influenced by precedents found in both the natural and the man-made worlds, and guided by an enduring interest in architectural history and design theory. He joined Grimshaw in London in 1995, moved to their New York office in 2003, and became a Partner in 2010.

The Eden Project is featured in detail in the current BSA Space exhibition, The New Inflatable Moment, on view at BSA Space through September 30, 2017.

The Boston Society of Architects/AIA (BSA) reaches its sesquicentennial anniversary in 2017. That’s 150 years of design professionals working together to build often inventive and creative buildings for this city and for the people who live in it. It’s really quite amazing—150 years of progress, innovation, standard-setting, collaboration, and community building.

Other initiatives marking the 150th anniversary may include: an exhibition timeline at BSA Space focusing on the BSA's achievements over the last 150 years, weekly  essays from a leader or ally of the organization, and plaques to be mounted on design award winning buildings.
