Description

RIBA Dorset Social and Tour:
Poundbury with Ben Pentreath and George Saumarez Smith

Food – Architecture – Drinks – Talk – Tour

FREE for RIBA members*. Starts Queen Mother Square, and ends at Brownsword Hall.

You are invited to the RIBA Dorset Social and Tour at Poundbury with Ben Pentreath of Ben Pentreath Ltd and George Saumarez Smith of ADAM Architecture.

Poundbury is the Duchy of Cornwall’s urban extension to the county town of Dorchester. Developed over a period of 20 years, with a further 10-15 years to completion, and designed to a masterplan by Leon Krier, Poundbury has been an extraordinarily influential demonstration of the Prince of Wales’s vision for new mixed-use development.

Ben Pentreath has been increasingly involved in the design and delivery of Poundbury, and the practice is now responsible for much of the new development constructed since 2009, and into the future.

Ben and George will lead a tour of Poundbury talking about their current projects and the ethos that underpins the ongoing developments.

The programme will be:

5.30pm: Meet at Queen Mother Square for a tour of Poundbury with Ben and George
6.30pm: Drinks and talk from Ben on the underlying principles of the ongoing developments
7.00pm: Food and conversation
8.00pm: Depart
