New trial database: Pidgeon Digital

Friday, August 30, 2019

Pidgeon Digital is derived from the Pidgeon Audiovisual collection of illustrated talks by architects and related designers, which was started in 1979 by the late Monica Pidgeon. The purpose of the series, which consists of over 274 of these illustrated talks, is to widen the horizons of students of architecture and design by giving them the opportunity to share the thinking of leading members of the profession worldwide to whom they might not have access.

The collection includes speakers such as:

  • Architects: Will Alsop, Edward Cullinan, Terry Farrell, Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Kisho Kurokawa, Oscar Niemeyer, Jean Nouvel, Gaetano Pesce, Richard Rogers, Harry Seidler, Bernard Tschumi, Michael Webb
  • Engineers: Anthony Hunt, Ted Happold, Frei Otto, Peter Rice
  • Landscape architects: Kathryn Gustafson, Lawrence Halprin, Peter Jakobsen
  • Designers: Ron Arad, Roberto Burle Marx, Alan Fletcher, FHK Henrion

Trial period: September 1-30, 2019
