Architecture + Urbanism recommends 'Ben Kelly - International Orange, Pigeon Blue and the Red Curtain'

An MSA Open Lecture

5.30 pm Tuesday 8 December
Lecture Theatre 403 Benzie
Manchester School of Art

Manchester School of Art is delighted to host this talk by the esteemed Manchester School of Art alumnus Ben Kelly, one of the UK's most influential interior designers, and renowned for his design of Manchester's Haçienda club (1982) for the record label Factory Records. Kelly's multidisciplinary research engages in the capture and interpretation of specific periods of time, the results of which he applies to the design of interior and exhibition spaces. His practice links the materiality of aesthetics, through examination of shape, lighting, colour, materials, spatial and structural arrangements, which has attuned Kelly to certain synesthetic concepts that both reference and create highly considered atmospheres.
