Professor set to develop research after delivering lecture at Royal Institute of British Architects

RIBA Lecture

Birmingham School of Architecture and Design’s Professor Christian Frost recently delivered an “oversubscribed” public lecture at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), provoking responses that offered “interesting insights into furthering research”.

The lecture

The lecture entitled ‘From Medieval House to Palazzo’ was part of the RIBA’s ‘Perspectives on Architecture Series’ and took place at Portland Place in London on February 23.

The main focus of the talk was the presentation of the professor’s research undertaken as part of a 2013 RIBA Research Trust Award. Professor Christian Frost said:


Frost’s research revolves around using Florence’s festival history and adapting this to understand how meaning is established and developed through civic festivals.

Having been a qualified architect for over 26 years from completing both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of Cambridge and practicing all over the world, Professor Frost now holds the Oscar Naddermier Chair in Architecture at Birmingham City University and is the Director of History, Theory and Cultural Context at Birmingham School of Architecture and Design.
