As his new book Why We Build is published, Rowan Moore, architecture critic for the Observer, will be at the Edinburgh International Book Festival to discuss why architecture matters with fellow author Owen Hatherley.
WHY ARCHITECTURE MATTERS
Rowan Moore is the most lucid, outspoken and entertaining writer on architecture in Britain today.
His new book, Why We Build, examines why humans have the urge to build. He is joined by Owen Hatherley whose A New Kind of Bleak argues that an era of public sector cuts will leave Britain's landscape to rot. Here are two writers whose views on British architecture will provoke, entertain and enlighten.
Rowan and Owen will be discussing why architecture matters at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
11.00am, Sunday 26th August 2012
