Estonian Academy of Arts Faculty of Architecture Public Guest Speaker Series

Robert White is a founding Partner of White Partners providing strategic consulting and appointment negotiation to architecture practices around the world. White Partners collaborate with architectural offices like Richard Rogers Partnership, Office of Zaha Hadid, OMA, Snöhetta, UN Studio and MVRDV, gaining acknowledgement for their analytical and creative business thinking and negotiation. As a graduate architect (Bartlett University College of London) his specialisation in the "business of architecture" has meant that Robert's work in the building industry has brought together some of the worlds best clients and creators. His lecture entitled  “The architect's job is to get the job, get the job, get the job" will show how this can happen. Illustrated through a selection of giant city developments, big sport and airports he will show how and when the projects form and how to win “the best” out of them.

At the Open Lecture Series well-known architects, theoreticians, critics and urbanists from all around the globe give talks to offer fresh perspectives on architecture, design, urban development and critical thought. The lectures are open to all students and professionals in the fields of architecture, urbanism and spatial studies, as well as to the broader circle of those interested in the future of our living environment.

The autumn season of lectures is supported by Estonian Cultural Endowment and organised by the Architecture department of Estonian Art Academy.
