Architecture: People & Places

The group leaders are Paul Cooney & Keith Barker

What does the group do ? 

We have talks or watch videos about many things loosely associated with architecture. 

Such as :-

A particular architect & their buildings good or bad! 

Someone such as William Morris who influenced the style of buildings & their contents.

Maybe an architectural style such as brutalism or Victorian Gothic.

Famous buildings, a geographical area, or even buildings connected by a route such as railway architecture.

Many of the talks include a bit of historical or cultural background to the chosen theme. The topics are quite eclectic so it is certainly not just all about arches and columns, but about people and places connected by architecture & the built environment. We look forward to seeing you there.
