Event description

Description

The debate will discuss how we use memory in architecture and urban design to connect with the communities for which we build. Cities are laden with memory. It is not just the memories of our own. The memories of generations come down to us through places and buildings. Some of these are deliberate attempts to keep alive records of the past, such as monuments or museums, and some simply hold the memories of past designers and users. It is the combination of these memories that gives the historic city its richness and depth of meaning. They are all around us and are our heritage, bringing together community and physical identity.

Speakers:

John Stevenson: Former Head of Architectural Design at the Oxford School of Architecture, Member of the Oxford Preservation Trust Heritage Panel; Robert Adam: Director of ADAM Architecture with 20 years' experience in masterplanning, an author and lecturer; Professor Karen Till: Professor of Geography at Maynooth University; George Saumarez Smith: Director at ADAM Architecture and a leading classical architect of his generation; Professor Wendy Pullan: Professor of Architecture and Urban Studies and Head of the Department of Architecture at the University of Cambridge.
