"[...]Gonçalo M Furtado C Lopes [...] work is of interest to us as it is the first comprehensive scholarship to tie together the work and interrelationships between [...] three key figures in the development of British Architecture [...]. Its importance lies not in it's historical interest alone but because of the relationship of this work to key initiatives [...] that focuses on the design and development of new technologies and processes that are adaptative and responsive to environmental and programmatic transformations. [...] Gonçalo M Furtado C Lopes [...] lecture would inaugurate to the School's lecture series in 2008.
