Sculpture & Architecture
Sculptors and Architects one and the same
**At the Carriage House-the Vintage**
by David Worthington.
The first architects were likely the stonemasons who built temples and cathedrals. In the ancient world that building was a plinth for a sculpture such as the golden Athena on the Parthenon. Over time sculpture became decoration before being stripped away by the 'less is more' credo. The lecture will trace this inter-relationship showing how in an age of computer-aided design an understanding of sculpture is more important than ever for architecture.
David has been drawn to abstract sculpture since seeing Barbara Hepworth in a schoolbook. he graduated in Philosophy and Theology from Oxford in 1984, then studied fine art in London, Barcelona, and New York. A sculptor with many international commissions, he also curates and writes about art. he was shortlisted for the Jerwood Sculpture Prize in 2009.
