Rated as the best architecture school in the U.K. over the past decade, the School of Architecture is part of University College London. Cantley will lecture on his current research on experimental drawing typographies, as well as his theoretical political and social projects. Among these: “Urban Brothel,” which looks at the global commerce of prostitution, and his “Palimpsest Relationship” drawings, which explore and challenge the norms of both architectural drawings/prints and the hegemony of organized religion, as well as the new social/sacred space of social media.
