The Charles Holden Lecture 2017

Book your ticket now

In this year's Charles Holden Lecture, Professor Simon Eliot will explore Senate House and the work of the MOI, starting with a discussion of Holden's early work for the London Underground, which combined new typography and mapping with architecture. In this context, Holden's masterpiece, and the Ministry of Information which occupied it, can be seen as making new forms of communication concrete.

The lecture will be followed by a reception in Senate House.

This event is organised by the Friends of Senate House Library and is free and open to all.
