Kevin McCloud- New Lives for Old Buildings

Kevin McCloud and Jonathan Foyle discuss the opportunities and pitfalls of taking on old buildings.

Kevin is best known for Channel 4's Grand Designs and for his annual coverage of the Stirling Prize each October. He admits to an unhealthy obsession for buildings since childhood: he studied the history of them at Cambridge, has designed everything in and around them, has lit them and written about them. He now champions issues such as context, the historic environment and sustainable construction.His two ambitions are to entertain and to make the built environment better- and consequently 'make people feel better'. In this unique event, Kevin discusses the nature of character and the opportunities and pitfalls of taking on old buildings, in conversation with Jonathan Foyle, CEO of WMF Britain - and the audience.
