This talk will be of interest to anyone (architects,engineers,contractors) working with old buildings or anyone interested in the history of architecture and the development of building conservation philosophy as a whole, which began with the formation of the SPAB in 1877.
Matthew will be talking about the SPAB approach to building conservation, why it is so important we conserve our old buildings, along with past cases where the SPAB have been involved in proposals for historic buildings in Ireland.
Tickets are €5 plus booking fee for SPAB members / students / unwaged, and €10 plus booking fee general admission.
About SPAB Ireland
was established in 2017 as the inaugural Irish branch of the SPAB. Following the return of several recent Irish SPAB Fellows and Scholars to live and work in Ireland, the lack of an SPAB presence has been acutely felt. After a successful open meeting in February 2017, we have established a committee and have started planning how we will bring the SPAB philosophy and ethos to Ireland.
