The Architecture Exchange represents a new platform for architectural debate in London, aimed at fostering intellectual exchange between architecture and other fields. In this, the first seminar series, philosopher Graham Harman’s radical reading of Heidegger is discussed by six eminent architectural thinkers. These intimate talks will take place throughout May 2013, culminating in a final discussion led by Harman on 22 June 2013.

All talks are free to attend and will take place in Swedenborg Hall. This event is organized by the Architecture Exchange in association with the Swedenborg Society.

This series represents a rare chance to witness these speakers in such an intimate environment, and the talks should attract anyone with an interest in architecture or philosophy.
