The first of our summer series of monthly Second Tuesday Talks will explore how new ironwork is designed for heritage settings.
New designs in heritage settings will always stimulate debate. Whether the design is reticent and recessive, or boldly contemporary, there will always be vehement advocates for and against the outcome.
So how do you go about creating an imaginative and confident response, derived from the context, which not only respects but enhances historic surroundings?
Bethan Griffiths (The Ironwork Studio) will explore design approaches to new work in historic settings, looking at how, as designers, we can:
o Interrogate and analyse historic settings
o Evaluate the significance of findings
o Translate these into a design response
o Reflect the story inherent within its heritage
o Justify our reasoning and design decisions
