Dunlop bridges Atlantic with Kansas address
Alan Dunlop is to give a lecture at Kansas City Library today in his role as the Regnier Chair at Kansas State University.

The gm+ad partner will deliver a summation of the work of the practice and the development of Glasgow in a talk entitled ‘Teasing the Grid: The Fish, The Bishop and Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow, Daisy’.

Summarising the city’s development from the medieval times to the Victorian age Dunlop will trace parallels between the city and its North American contemporaries, outlining a shared built heritage which straddles the Atlantic.

Dunlop is the first UK holder of the Victor. L Regnier Chair of Architecture and succeeds such international architects as Hiroshi Hara.

Sounds like a really interesting lecture, if only we could have a live link up to Scotland!

Enjoy all

Looking forward to it! The historic photograph slides, line diagrams, and comparisons of Glasgow and Chicago are not to be missed.
We are all sorry that Alan, our visiting professor for the Glasgow Studio at Kansas State University, will be far away soon!

Miss G,

You need to get the students to do the same as they did for the Roses Design Awards 2009 - watch live .

Your students should be doing it for 57'10" as well.

Sorry I will be missing it. Alan has given some very enticing and insightful lectures at Kansas State University. Everyone will surely enjoy his personality.

Great title... for anything really. Would be really interested to compare our ideas of a contemporary city and how it manifests itself with you guys across the pond. Will be checking the Kansas blog intently...

Inspiring title..makes one think!

If only the lecture was a 15min bus ride away..

The lecture was great! It's always intriguing to hear Alan's perspective on architecture and design -- specifically how if it doesn't spark attention and opinion, then frankly it isn't doing its job!

Working with Alan at Kansas State has truly been an unforgettable experience!

Enough. The sycophancy is sickmaking. At least if he's in the US he's not spoiling Glasgow.

My goodness. What an unkind and undeserved comment! The lecture by Mr Alan Dunlop was really excellent, what an architect and what wonderful hand drawings! Glasgow should be proud I think we loved it in Kansas City

Welcome to the bitterness that is the UK, Mario. RVW's probably a bit of a lush.

No, RVW simply thinks that this is all a bit gagmaking.

Gagmaking is an insult I take it. I assure you Mr Dunlop's presentation was quite exceptional. If he would stay here we would be happy but I think Scotland would be the poorer:-(

Oh do keep him. He's not a great architect, glad he's useful somewhere.
