"Stories are often an aspect that remains untold or hidden behind our projects; yet we feel that they are the reason that gives depth to certain projects, going beyond just what we see. They are often the very motor to projects." - Brendan MacFarlane.

In this lecture, Brendan will share and explain these stories behind his work, how they have developed and given form and meaning.

Brendan MacFarlane was born in New Zealand, and received his B.Arch degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture, and his M.Arch degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He has held teaching positions at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London at the Ecole Spéciale d'Architecture in Paris, and at SCI-Arc.

Current projects include the Euronews Headquarters in Lyon, the new FRAC Architecture Exhibition Center in Orléans, a Dance and Music Conservatory in Noisy-le-Sec and the High school of Art and Communication of Pau.
