On Altering Architecture by Fred Scott

5 May 2016 5:30 pm at SAUL Studio

Witherford Watson Mann Architects by William Mann introduced by Jan Frohburg

12 April 2016 5:00 pm at SAUL Studio

Can you save the remnants of a historic castle by building a new house inside it? William Mann will present architectural interventions at Astley Castle, covering its many design challenges. Astley is a remote site with rich historic resonance: a moated castle, lake, church and the ghost of pleasure gardens are grouped around a shallow ridge. With its restoration now complete, you look out from twelfth and twenty-first century construction to fifteenth and seventeenth century walls - the dialogue across the centuries frames contemporary conversations. On a somewhat similar theme but bigger scale William Mann will also talk about the tendency to demolish and build new in the city - and how the frequent regeneration ambition to erase the past is fundamentally flawed.
