Join architects and collaborators, Edward Jones and Jeremy Dixon, as they discuss previous projects and Postmodernism at Sir John Soane’s Museum.
Dixon and Jones’ Royal Opera House at Covent Garden is featured in our current exhibition, The Return of the Past: Postmodernism in British Architecture; a show which explores the work of five pioneering protagonists of the Postmodern movement in 1980s Britain. To celebrate the exhibition and this experimental period of urban architecture, the two architects will discuss their partnership, their previous collaborative projects and the postmodern label.
