Heritage of London Trust Annual Conference – London’s Anatomy: Victorian Buildings from Top to Toe
4 July - 09:00 - 17:00£55
London’s Victorian buildings are marvels of engineering, invention and artifice. They include iconic buildings famous around the world but also local theatres, schools, libraries and town halls in every part of London, crafted with extraordinary attention to detail.
This conference will look at their actual fabrication in brick, terracotta, glass and stone – the creation of bold decorative detail and the technologies and transportation that made new building on this scale possible. It offers an imaginative means of understanding London’s buildings, conjuring the skills and labour of a now lost workforce to reveal the human scale of Victorian London.
The Society of Antiquaries, next to the Royal Academy, is one of London’s foremost Grade II* Italianate Victorian buildings and also has a world class Tudor painting collection.
The conference will include conservation exhibitors during the day.
Tickets are £55 and include lunch and refreshments.
