How did some of the most inspiring people in architecture and design get to where they are today?

In celebration of Royal Gold Medal Week 2017, RIBA International and Honorary Fellows and acclaimed built environment professionals tell a series of personal stories with architecture in a programme of Life by Design talks across the UK, sponsored by Ibstock. Each of the talks will be followed by an opportunity to discuss further questions in an audience Q&A.

These speakers will discuss their work, their inspiration, and the paths their careers have taken. Join us to find out how architecture has shaped their lives, what motivates them and what advice they would give to the next generation of design professionals.
