The City of Oxford is known world-wide for its historic built environment, shaped largely by the architecture of its university and 44 colleges. With a long tradition of patrons supporting remarkable buildings, this trend continues today and provides fascinating exemplars for how to manage historic environments and embrace challenging new architecture.
This two-part walking tour and seminar is an opportunity to visit developments built over the last 10 years in their urban context, and discuss ways of balancing historic and contemporary design.
It will be useful to local authority officers and councillors with planning and design portfolios, conservation officers, developers, architects, urban designers and planners in private practice, town and parish councillors, and civic society members. The benefits of attending this seminar are:
