Time: 8pm

Location/venue: Stamford Endowed School Hall, St Paul's Street

Hear why Britain’s urban domestic architecture of the 18th and early 19th Century is the admiration of the world. In design erudite and harmonious, in plan sensible, adaptable and ingenious with individual houses often balanced in design, size and use to create exemplary urban quarters. Yet almost invariably these remarkable creations were realised in the most ruthless of circumstances, as speculations built quickly and cheaply by often humble artisans in search of profits.

These creations are urban works of art by accident. How did they come about? What lessons can we learn?

The talk will focus on a number of case studies including Spitalfields in East London.

Dan is an art historian and TV presenter with a special interest in the history of architecture. He holds a BA in Art, Design and Architecture and is a widely published author.
