A discussion of Cedric Price's Fun Palace at the Geological Society on 22nd March 2010:

This new series invites critics to propose and make a case for what they believe to be London’s most significant and important building. A panel of respondents will debate and discuss the chosen building, and encourage the audience to share their own views.
Hans Ulrich Obrist is the Co-Director for Exhibitions and Programmes at the Serpentine Gallery. He has curated over 200 exhibitions and his recent publications include Formulas for Now, which invites contributors from the fields of art, science, mathematics, music, architecture and literature to express their understanding of contemporary life.
The unrealised Fun Palace (1961–74) was planned as a multi-purpose complex for theatre and cultural projects, addressing the urgent need to connect different disciplines and practitioners in a world of ever-changing parameters.

Tickets can be booked here.
