All day (including lunch and refreshments). Doors open at 9.30am, proceedings begin at 10am.

Following successful conferences held by the Group in previous years, this day-long symposium will explore how women contributed to and interacted with architecture in the period 1660-1840. Women’s involvement in architectural design and drawing, their patronage of buildings and their contribution to the building industry has long been overlooked by scholars. Drawing on recent research, the symposium will reassess, and throw new light upon, female architectural achievement and the significance this has upon our understanding of architecture from this period.

Following the symposium there will be a reception at 6 Fitzroy Square, W1T 5DX.
