Jamie Fobert was born in Canada and studied architecture at the University of Toronto. He arrived in London in 1988 and worked for eight years at David Chipperfield Architects before founding his own practice in 1996.
Jamie Fobert Architects has established a reputation for innovative and inspiring architectural design in the residential, retail and arts sectors. Working with diverse clients, from cultural organisations such as Tate and Kettle’s Yard to luxury retailers such as Givenchy and Versace, the practice has demonstrated a consistent approach to resolving client ambitions and site complexities into a tactile architecture of volume, material and light.
Jamie Fobert Architects has garnered several awards, including RIBA Awards, the Manser Medal, and the RIBA and English Heritage ‘Award for a building in an historic context’. The practice has won three major public commissions for cultural organisations: Tate St Ives, the Charleston Trust and Kettle’s Yard, all of which are on site this year. Other current projects include private houses in London and Trinidad and the interior of a new department store in an historic palazzo in Venice.
The Daniels Faculty is proud to host a popular public lecture series featuring leading professionals and academics in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and visual studies.
All events are free and open to the public (unless otherwise stated). Tickets are not required for events at 230 College Street and seating is provided on a first come, first served basis. As many of our speakers attract capacity crowds, we recommend that you arrive early to avoid disappointment.
No latecomers will be admitted into the theatre once the lecture has started, however an overflow room with a live video-feed will be set up in Room 106 for those unable to obtain a seat in the main lecture hall. We also post videos of most evening lectures on our YouTube channel. If you have any questions about our events, please don’t hesitate to contact our Communications and Events Coordinator Pamela Walls at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-978-2253.
