Forschungs-Mittwoch mit Michael Oldham: At the Intersection of Conservation of Built Heritage and Landscape Architecture

Mittwoch, 2. Oktober 2019, 17 Uhr
HKB, Fellerstrasse 11, Raum 229, Bern

Guest: Michael Oldham is an award-winning landscape architect, artist, jeweller and writer. He studied at Plymouth Art College, Plymouth Polytechnic, and Sheffield University, and worked both in local government and private practice.


Host: Sebastian Dobrusskin, Head of the Institute Materiality in Art and Culture.



In his lecture Michael Oldham will present three projects, St. Edmunds Church (England), Barr Town Centre (France) and Stonehouse Peninsula (England), dealing with the relationship between landscape architecture and the preservation of architectural monuments. For example, changes in road networks or the changed meaning of a path both affect the position of a monument in its surroundings and can thus have an impact on its access and perception.



Followed by an Apéro.
