Lecture by Nilesh Patel, Architect and Filmmaker – Friday 14th October 2016.

Nilesh’s film of Bishop Edward King Chapel has just premiered at the New York Architecture & Design Film Festival, followed by a showing at the Milan Architecture Film Festival.

The Bishop Edward King Chapel film explores how an architectural film can present images of the wood, light and stone that shape our religious and spiritual life.

Níall McLaughlin Architects was commissioned to design a new chapel for Ripon Theological College in Cuddesdon, after winning an RIBA competition in 2009.  The Bishop Edward King Chapel was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize after completion in 2013.

Nilesh will talk about the making and background to this intense and reflective film, along with two other of his documentary picture narrative film projects. These include Great & Small, looking at the difficult consequences of the foot and mouth epidemic, and A Love Supreme, crossing the film techniques from the Scorsese film Raging Bull with his mother’s hands making samosas.

Nilesh is an alternative and collaborative thinker and maker. His final thesis project in architecture school was an ‘immigration’ centre with its plan based on a Jasper John Union Jack. His architectural practice is in the landscape world and he has worked with Gustafson-Porter designing Nottingham’s Market Square.

This is an all course Architecture lecture.
