Event: Symposium: Georgian London Revisited. Online, 22-23 May 2021

The Georgian Group symposium for 2021 will take place online on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 May. Following the successful conferences run by the Group in previous years on Women and Architecture, on the architecture of James Gibbs and on the work of the Adam brothers, the symposium for 2021 will highlight changing perspectives and new research on the architecture of London undertaken since the publication of the latest edition of Sir John Summerson’s Georgian London (1988, reissued 2003). A series of short papers by both established and younger scholars will cover aspects of housing and estate development, public and commercial architecture, places of entertainment and related topics.
