Thinking About A New World

Thinking About A New World


A conversation with Paffard Keatinge-Clay (AA dipl. 1949), recorded prior to his AA lecture in November 2008 on the occasion of the 'Le Corbusier at the AA' Symposium & Exhibition. Keatinge-Clay takes us through his spirited AA student days and early practice, with entertaining and inspiring accounts of how it was that he came to work for and to know Erno Goldfinger, Sigfried Gideon, Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright. Inclusive of a story of the pilgrimmage, with 2 AA student friends, to Le Corbusier's studio and house where they did not meet Le Corbusier himself but instead his gracious wife who invited them to have cooked eggs and explore the house to their hearts' delight. Broadcast with thanksto Paffard Keatinge-Clay and to Edward Bottoms (AA Archives). This recording is the first in a series of oral history interviews planned by the AA Archives documenting the AA in the 1940's and 1950's.
