Architectural Patronage in an Age of Reform

The Georgian Group Announcements & general news, News

The Georgian Group has partnered with the University of Liverpool and Lambeth Palace Library on an AHRC-funded network project, 'Architecture and Society in an Age of Reform, 1760-1840'. On 18th and 19th September, a two-day conference, 'Architectural Patronage in an Age of Reform', will be held at Lambeth Palace; the conference will examine how the nature of architectural patronage changed during the period 1760 to 1840 and will explore the issues associated with this in a global context. 

Delegates will also have the opportunity to view an associated exhibition, in the Great Hall, of items from the palace library of relevance to the themes of the conference. In addition, on the evening of the 18th September there will be a reception and a lecture by Dr Megan Aldrich on 'Thomas Rickman, a Quaker Architect and the Anglicans', which is open to non-conference delegates.
