Two young Berlin-based architects come together for this Royal Academy of Arts architecture lecture entitled Contemporary German Architects. They have spoken together many times in places ranging from Berkeley to Copenhagen, so the chemistry promises to be easy even if the facade-driven, organic and materials-loving architecture is not so simple. Jurgen Mayer H, the co-designer of the Serpentine Pavilion 2007 with Kjetil Thorsen (whose firm Snohetta recently lost the Turner Contemporary commission to David Chipperfield Architects), and Frank Barkow of Barkow Leibinger Architects will each present a series of projects and discuss how their works combines art and architecture. If you're in the mood to see what's coming out of Berlin (a city which provides more heat and light for architecture than London does, and whose consumption of cranes is yet higher), it's a must-see.

NB: on 22/10 (6:30pm) also at the Geological Society catch another architectural lecture entitled New Tendencies In German Architecture with Nikolaus Hirsch, Jan Liesegang and Matthias Sauerbruch.
