Supersonic: The design and lifestyle of Concorde at Aerospace Bristol

About

Join Lawrence Azerrad, Grammy Award-winning author of Supersonic, and Sebastian Conran principal of Sebastian Conran Associates, for an evening of conversation on the ingenuity and enduring creative legacy of Concorde, the world’s first - and so far only - luxury supersonic airliner.

“Supersonic explores the history, design, technology, and lifestyle of Concorde, the 1960s aircraft that could cross the Atlantic in under three hours. Yet, more than the time-bending capabilities of the aircraft itself, Supersonic celebrates the creative optimism and determination that made Concorde’s vision possible. Concorde commissioned notable designers including Sir Terence Conran, Roger Excoffon, Raymond Loewy, and Andrée Putman to create objects and spaces that enhanced the in-flight experience at every touchpoint. 

Concorde provides an example of aspiration that we can learn from today. It’s an invitation to dream and create. It provides a calling that is needed now more than ever. We’ll explore that calling September 19, at Aerospace Bristol.”
Lawrence Azerrad
