Annual Architecture Lecture 8th November 2017
Ross Kelway and Kate Bailey
Rising to the challenge –managing development in a historic environment
Growth in the south east is putting increased pressure on our historic cities and towns and on the cherished landscapes, including Green Belt land, which surrounds them. Heritage is synonymous with character, and places with character are inevitably in the greatest demand. Historic towns cannot, however, be frozen in time; they must continue to grow and evolve. For this to happen in a way which does not weaken, but reinforces, the intrinsic appeal of the town, we must change our approach to new development.
This year’s Lecture will take place on Wednesday 8 November at 7pm in the Rik Medlik Building on the University’s Stag Hill campus. The Society will be pleased to welcome guest speaker, Chris Lamb, Director of the design advocacy charity Design South East, who will discuss the often controversial topic of developing historic environments.
