VitrA partnered with the RIBA in Autumn 2018 to launch the RIBA + VitrA Talks series. The flagship programme is aimed at showcasing the best in contemporary established and emerging voices in architecture, both in the UK and internationally with talks occurring in London, Istanbul and regional cities in the UK.

The 2018 programme of the RIBA + VitrA Talks consisted of four critically-acclaimed talks featuring celebrated international names Kazuyo Sejima, Sir David Adjaye and Kate Macintosh amongst others.

In 2019, the series opened with talks by non-profit design firm MASS Design Group and world-class architects Frida Escobedo and Emre Arolat. These were followed with talks by renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, speaking in London and Istanbul in April, and architects Feilden Fowles talking at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, recently shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize.

The partnership with RIBA reflects VitrA’s long-established commitment to add cultural value to society through the global exchange of architectural discourse.

Tickets are free of charge and can be booked here. For more information on the RIBA + VitrA talks series, please visit www.architecture.com/ribavitra
