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 best happen. Illustrated through a selection of giant city developments, big sport and airports he will show some of how and when the projects form and how to win “the best” out of them.
The lecture series is supported by the Estonian Cultural Endowment.
