Managing Contemporary and Historic Design and Development – Oxford

13 September 2017
Oxford

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:

  • A first-hand appreciation of contemporary development within an historic setting
  • An understanding of how planning guidance and decision-making frameworks are established and used
  • The opportunity to discuss guidance and its interpretation with key figures in the city
  • An awareness of the main issues for guiding and promoting good contemporary design
  • An appreciation of key conservation and urban design principles
  • Greater confidence in decision-making on design in historic places or conservation area setting.
