Does the past have a future?
Our recent Historic Building event at Somerset House provided interesting insights into some of the challenges and successes associated with the current and future use of heritage buildings, of all different types.
We were delighted to welcome two eminent specialists in the area, David Tomback of Historic England and Matthew Mckeague of The Architectural Heritage Fund to present their thoughts to us and then take part in the subsequent panel discussion, chaired by James Souter of this firm. Importantly, during the event, they both, James Souter and Helen Hutton all considered numerous examples of heritage buildings which are now very much at the centre of outstanding redevelopment projects and are celebrating a new and very positive lease of life.
We are pleased to be able to share the videos of the speeches and the question and answer session, which were recorded on the evening:
