Dezeen has partnered with Knauf to present Architecture Project Talks, a series of presentations by architects about key projects that involve historic structures, sustainable materials and digital reconstruction methods.
The three talks, which count towards continuing professional development (CPD) points for UK architects, feature Grade II*-listed community theatre Battersea Arts Centre, Stirling Prize-shortlisted Cork House and 168 Upper Street, a deliberately distorted replica of a Victorian terrace.
Read on for more information and to register for free to attend the talks.
Battersea Arts Centre by Haworth Tompkins

The project's architect Martin Lydon will discuss the design and delivery process, the challenges of working with a historic building and how the studio handled the fire that destroyed the building midway through its renovation.

1:00pm London time on Friday 11 June 2021
Located beside the River Thames in Berkshire, England, Cork House is a residential building made from sustainably sourced cork.
168 Upper Street by Groupwork
1:00pm London time on Friday 2 July 2021
Amin Taha, founder of architecture studio Groupwork, and project architect Jason Coe will present on 168 Upper Street, a terrace corner that has a cast concrete facade punctuated with mismatched openings.
