ADAM Director Hugh Petter as Speaker for the 23rd Annual McKim Lecture by the ICAA in New York

January 25, 2024

ADAM Director Hugh Petter has been chosen to be this years speaker at the Annual McKim Lecture by The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) partnered with the University Club and the One West 54th Street Foundation in New York on Wednesday 6th March at 6:15pm. The event is named in honour of the legendary architect Charles McKim.

In his lecture titled 'The Value of Tradition: A Personal Journey', Hugh will draw upon his academic research and the varied project work published in his recent monograph, Living Tradition, to lay out how he believes the past has so much to teach us as we wrestle with contemporary design problems, and how we can produce new buildings that are not only elegant, enduring, and highly sustainable, but which also sit comfortably alongside their older neighbours and landscape settings to create beautiful, harmonious places
