Architects Karl Lenton and Dennis Burr of Burr Lenton Architecture bureau will give an open lecture on December 8.
Grounded. An architectural response to varied landscapes around the world.
At first glance it is not obvious to identify a common tread or style running through our work, as each project differs in scale form and function and shares no obvious common language. But having time to investigate this question further, what has now become clear, is that over time, our work has developed through understanding and working with the landscape in which our projects can be found.
It is the variation of these landscapes that have produced the variations found in our work. From Water Towers in the flat, dry and arid landscape of Saudi Arabia to the rolling hills and lazy curved landscape at Zen 2 internet headquarters in the South Pennines, our architectural response is directed by the ground.
