SEDA Green Drinks (Glasgow) - POSTPONED

Due to industrial strike action by university staff we have had to postpone October's Green Drinks in Glasgow.

This will be re-scheduled for the beginning of next year. We apologise for any inconvenience but ask that you keep your fancy dress outfits to hand...


Thursday 31st October 2013 6.00 pm for a 6.30 pm start

Venue: Architecture@131, Strathclyde University, 131 Rottenrow, Glasgow, G4 0NG


Jonathan Charley will discuss 'ecology and disaster' at our Halloween Green drinks to compare the impact of large scale events against the contribution of minor design decisions.
Fancy dress will be encouraged with a prize to the most interesting costume, apple dooking for those hungry and slimy green cocktails for those thirsty.

Jonathan is currently Director of Cultural Studies in the Department of Architecture at the University of Strathclyde, and has been a lecturer and tutor across the world from Moscow, to Berlin, London, Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte. In 2012 he was appointed as the Project Director for Scotland at the Architecture Biennale in Venice. Alongside exhibitions and media projects, he writes mainly about the political and social history of architecture and cities, most recently Memories of Cities: Trips and Manifestos (2013), and the co-edited Writing the Modern City: Literature, Architecture and Modernity (2011). He speaks good Portuguese, adequate Russian and poor French, and has a life long passion for whisky, fish, dub-reggae and Plymouth Argyle Football Club.

See you there (though you may not know who I am, as I'll be in fancy dress...)


Ends: 31.10.2013
