Her guest lecture will be held on Thursday 20 March.
The remaining speakers in the series are: cultural critic and architectural theorist, Mark Cousins of the Architectural Association; Bill Sermon, partner at leading innovation consultancy Viadynamics; Peter Hellicar & Joel Gethin Lewis of consultancy Hellicar & Lewis; Stirling Prize winner Freddie Phillipson of Witherford Watson Mann Architects; the Design Team of the new Garden Bridge London; Philip Hall-Patch of Heatherwick Studio; Tom Armour from Arup; designer curator critic Gem Barton; and architect Pierre d'Avoine.
Senior Lecturer, Peter Dixon, who has organised the series, said: "Inside Out offers historical, theoretical and critical analyses of the arts, architecture and design. The programme is intended to address pertinent issues concerning new media across these sectors through critical and open discourse, including artists, architects, designers, critics, curators, theorists, alongside students from the School of Art, Architecture & Design and public in open discussion. The Inside Out Lecture Forum creates a platform for internationally recognised practitioners from across the arts to engage further with our city."
