We are delighted that the distinguished architect John Lyall has agreed to give the annual lecture.  John trained at the Architectural Association and worked in the offices of several notable architects before forming John Lyall Architects in 1991 and Lyall, Bills and Young in 2011.  His work in urban regeneration and his adaptations of historic buildings have won many prestigious awards.

More about John Lyall:   John established his reputation as an innovative young architect in the 1980’s with a number of landmark projects at home and abroad. Trained at the Architectural Association, for most of his professional career he has combined running an award-winning practice with contributios to the education of architects by teaching and examining all over the world.

Formative years working for Cedric Price and Piano+Rogers lead to the creation of the firm of Alsop & Lyall, from which John Lyall Architects was developed in 1991, then Lyall Bills & Young in 2011.

John has a successful track-record for his work in urban regeneration with projects in Leeds, Cardiff Bay and the London Olympics. Rail stations such as North Greenwich on the Jubilee Line, and cultural projects, like the recent Goldsmiths Centre in Clerkenwell  and Ipswich’s Jerwood DanceHouse, have also resulted in significant new buildings. Adaptations of historic buildings , like the Corn Exchange in Leeds, have added to the many awards received from bodies like the Civic Trust and the RIBA.

His design approach is summarized by the architectural critic Ken Powell, in the publication “John Lyall, Contexts and Catalysts”, and described on an urban scale in John Worthington’s book, “Context: New Buildings in Historic Settings”.
