Odile Decq delivers the 2017 Annual Peter Rice Lecture
Title: Architecture Thinking
Date: Tuesday 14th November 2017
Location: David Keir Building, Lecture Theatre DKB.OG.012
Odile Decq is a French architect and urban planner. International renown came in 1990 with her first commission: La Banque Populaire de L’Ouest in Rennes, France. Since then she has been faithful to her fighting attitude while diversifying and radicalizing her research. Being awarded The Golden Lion of Architecture during the Venice Biennale in 1996 acknowledged her early and unusual career. Other than just a style, an attitude or a process, Odile Decq’s work materializes a complete universe that embraces urban planning, architecture, design and art. Her multidisciplinary approach was recently recognised with the Jane Drew Prize in 2016, and this year she was honoured with Architizer’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
