Summary
The architect John Lyall set up his own firm in London in 1991, after working for some years with Alsop & Stormer. His practice has an international reputation for award-winning work, covering a variety of building types. He is equally at home with historic restoration and inventive modern buildings. He also lectures extensively around the world. In his talk he distinguishes between schemes which must act as a catalyst in areas bereft of existing context, and those where there is a clear urban context and which require a great deal of preparatory research. He describes his railway station designs and urban regeneration schemes in Britain. The strategy running through a lot of the renewal work is that new building should be distinguished as new, while what is old should read purely as archaeology
