The Architecture of Allusion | MJP Event
Date: 13 September 2018
Venue: The Wash House, Aldgate, London, England, UK
MJP has a rich portfolio spanning almost five decades, and it continues to influence the way in which the practice thinks today. Earlier this year, Historic England included work by MJP in the their listing of 17 seminal Post-Modern buildings, sparking debate in the office and provoking a wide range of views.
This has prompted the architecture practice to organise an evening of discussion on the broad themes of quotation, precedent and continuity. Join these guest speakers and explore their value in architecture and the creative process:
Chair: Jonathan Glancey – Critic, writer and Telegraph Architecture & Design Editor

Shumi Bose – RIBA Curator of Exhibitions, Senior Lecturer Central Saint Martins
Douglas Murphy – Architect, academic, journalist and author
Sir Charles Saumarez Smith CBE – Secretary and Chief Executive of The Royal Academy of Arts
Reza Schuster – Director, MJP Architects
The Wash House, Aldgate E1 7NT | Thursday 13th September 2018
The event will start with drinks at 6pm and end at 8:30pm.

North Point House Jersey – 2 Apr 2012
This MJP designed one-off house, on a rocky promontory in Jersey, has recently obtained a Planning Permit. The site has now been cleared ready for construction. The architects say: “This extraordinary site, wild and windswept, falls precipitously towards the rocky coastline. The house at Wolf’s Caves invites a particular kind of architectural response”.

Warwick Students Union
The original building was designed as a multi- purpose administrative building whose brief was changed to a Students’ Union whilst under construction. Since then it had become even less suitable for today’s requirements, having neither the flexibility nor the environmental performance to accommodate the range of activities expected of a modern Students’ Union building. The Students’ Union is the primary provider and organiser of non-academic activity within the University, and its success has a significant impact upon the experience of students within the University. Furthermore, the size, scale and reputation of the SU facility is a major factor in prospective students’ choice of HE institution.
St. John’s College Oxford, England, UK
Date built: 2010

St. John’s College Oxford
Kendrew Quadrangle for St John’s College, Oxford includes student accommodation and related facilities designed by this architects office. St. John’s College has a reputation for commissioning fine modern buildings, and has won several awards for the two projects previously designed by MJP Architects, the Garden Quadrangle and the Senior Common Room. The new scheme is a significant new element within the College’s historic grounds and an important addition to the cityscape.
