This session of RIBA Book Club will explore the meeting point between fiction and architecture. It features two novelists in conversation with RIBAJ Editor Hugh Pearman, Shiromi Pinto and Will Wiles, who both seek inspiration from architecture and architectural culture.

Shiromi Pinto’s latest book Plastic Emotions is inspired by the life of Sri Lankan modernist architect Minnette de Silva and her affair with Le Corbusier.

Will Wiles is an architecture and design writer, and a RIBAJ columnist. He is the author of three acclaimed novels, Care of Wooden Floors, The Way Inn and Plume, that all draw on acute architectural and wry personal observation.
