Georgian Group Symposium: The Architecture of James Gibbs

The Georgian Group is pleased to announce its forthcoming symposium on the work of James Gibbs. This one-day symposium, on Saturday 29 September at the Society of Antiquaries, will reassess, and throw new light upon, Gibbs's achievements and their significance for the understanding of Georgian architecture. The symposium will be held from 10 am to 5.15 pm, and will be led by Dr Geoffrey Tyack, editor of the Georgian Group Journal. Speakers will include leading authorities on eighteenth-century British architecture and decorative art - among them Andrew Martindale, Peter Guillery, Richard Hewlings, Charles Hind, Hugh Petter and Alec Cobbe - and younger scholars.

Our Aims and Purpose

The Georgian Group is the national charity dedicated to preserving Georgian buildings and gardens. We were founded in 1937.  

We aim to protect historic buildings through providing advice to owners and architects, campaigning, and through our role as statutory consultees in the planning system. Our annual awards promote excellence in design and conservation. In its casework, the Georgian Group advises councils, church bodies, and others on threats to the historic fabric and setting of structures built between 1700 and 1840.

The Group organises lectures and other events aimed at improving the understanding of aspects of the eighteenth and early nineteenth century built heritage.  We also produce technical advice leaflets, and promote the publication of academic research through our journal.
