KASA is delighted to announce an upcoming lecture by Matthew Slocombe, Director of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB). The lecture will be held in Marlowe Lecture Theatre 1 on Thursday 30th November 2017 at 6PM.
The society was founded by William Morris and others in 1877. SPAB’s principal concern is the nature of ‘restoration’ or ‘repair’ to old buildings, because misguided work can be extremely destructive. Matthew will be talking about the SPAB approach – an overview of the Society’s conservation philosophy (including repair and design issues) and an explanation of their current work (including the Philip Webb award for conservation and design, and the Scholarship programme for architects).
