Event Description: 

How can new buildings transform historical environments?

How can new buildings transform historical environments and what does the ‘wow factor’ of radical contemporary architecture say about a city’s image and ideology? ROZ BARR’s design for the extension to Bath’s Holburne Museum eventually won plaudits but it wasn’t an easy sell to begin with. Join director at Zaha Hadid Architects, JIM HEVERIN, whose overseen projects including the Port House in Antwerp, a radical addition to the cityscape, reflecting the city’s shipping and diamond trading heritage and ANDREW VINES, Regional Director at Historic England, a organisation helping to shape future landscapes through listing the contemporary buildings that will become future classics. What could Bath learn from other cities in shaping it’s future?
