Jan Kaplický: Visions of the Future

Czech radical neofuturist architect Jan Kaplický (1937 –2009), whose best-known work includes the Media Centre at Lord's Cricket Ground, which won the prestigious Stirling Price in 1999 and the World Architecture Awards in 2001, and the Selfridges store facade in Birmingham which gained the RIBA Award for Architecture 2004, is considered to be one of the most influential visionaries of modern architecture.

Chaired by the London Design Museum’s director and Kaplický's personal friend Deyan Sudic, this talk brings together a group of leading architects, designers and curators as they explore the work of the radical Czech architect, the legacy of his futuristic designs and his dedication to finding new definitions of domesticity.

Speakers: Richard Rogers, Irena Murray and Eva Franch

The event accompanies the London Design Museum’s Home Futures exhibition.
