The crisis of architecture

Renonwed neo-classical architect Quinlan Terry was the speaker at our 2016 Antony Dale lecture in the Paganini Ballroom at the Old Ship Hotel on 9 March. His chosen title was the crisis of architecture.

He sang the praises of the classical tradition in architecture and lamented what he sees as the malign effect of modernism. Low rise, symetrically proportioned buildings created with traditional materials are to be encouraged. Tall towers of concrete and glass are ruining our cities.

The evening was chaired by Regency Society trrustee David Robson. You can read his account of the proceedings here ...
