In May and June the Society ran a popular series of five classes tracing the evolution of London’s architecture.
It was a new departure for us, but one that fits very well with our role of engaging both professionals and non-professionals with the history and the future of the capital’s development. As well as these classes there have been several walks looking at different aspects of London’s building and architectural heritage (with more to come – be sure to check out our events page).
There will be further Saturday schools this autumn and we’re already starting to think about what we might do in 2018. Members get priority booking and discounts off the usual ticket price, so if you’re not yet a member, you should join today.
Below are the presentations from the five speakers:
- ALEC FORSHAW: MEDIEVAL ARCHITECTURE – LONDON BEFORE THE GREAT FIRE – AN EXPLORATION OF ITS MEDIEVAL ARCHITECTURE
- DR GEOFFREY TYACK: GEORGIAN ARCHITECTURE
- SUSIE BARSON: VICTORIAN ARCHITECTURE – AN INTRODUCTION
- ALAN POWERS: MODERN ARCHITECTURE IN LONDON BETWEEN THE WARS
- CHRIS ROGERS: CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE – WHERE, WHY and HOW : LONDON’S ARCHITECTURE TODAY (and TOMORROW)
